On youtube I've seen some videos of the Polish-Ukrainian border, of the endless row of trucks, but not the border itself.

It is look like the highway of ukrainian had many advances since the Rusia offered autonomy to the ukrainian people, manage their budget, build some construction by their ownself. And it like became new advance country.

CIA World Factbook says that Ukraine has only 15 km of expressway. Is it true?

It is not true because M5 Kiev-Odessa is much, much longer.

This "intelligence" by the CIA is usually incorrect or incomplete, or at least outdated. I wouldn't take the CIA World Factbook as a source for expressways length in various countries.

My definition of expressway is minimum speed limit 80 km/hour, normal speed 100km/hour to 120km/hour, no traffic stop in entire road, minimum 2x2 lanes, and fully closed to prevent pedestrian and vehicle crossing.

Well, this is not a professional defitnition, though

This one isn't neither, but is more precise:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorway

I belive that in Ukraine a expressway/highway is a 2x2 road, does not have all flyovers

The definition of a motorway is quite clear:

* 2x2 lanes
* shoulders
* grade separated crossings
* no slow traffic allowed

However, some countries have motorways lacking shoulders. Ukrainian motorways also have left turns and grade crossings (usually without traffic lights). They can maybe be called expressways. With the Ukrainian definitions, Russia also has a lot of expressways, since they have most major roads at 4 lanes.

This prevents many roads in Ukraine from being highways in the way we understand them

If highways have grade crossings, they will not be called motorways (aвтомагiстраль) in Ukraine either. If you want to see a real Ukrainian motorway, then you have to look at Kiev - Boryspil (Airport) road. Still, it has bus stop pockets that are not physically separated from the main roadway:




All other highways are more like expressways.

And that's probably where those 15 km come from, the Kiev - Boryspil (airport) motorway.

Yes, I think so too because that stretch had motorway designation (130 km/h, grade separated crossings, etc) long before Ukraine started to build other expressways/motorways.
