I've sent money through Western Union and through MEEST.
With Western Union, you must pay their exchange rate to send money in US dollars (not so good for Canadians and others), and the recipient receives the money in local currency (hrivnas).
With MEEST, you can send money without the cost of exchange, in your local currency, if you like, and the recipient receives whatever kind of currency you like (preferably US dollars, of course). The cash (US bucks) is delivered right to their door.
Also, MEEST agencies specialize in wiring money to Ukraine, and it's easy, whereas, I've found that sending money through Western Union is a hassle, because, if the agent isn't familiar with sending money to Ukraine, they don't know what they're doing.
I would definitely recommend sending through MEEST.
