Well - regarding the pictures which were assumed to be copyvio due to
no freedom of panorama in Ukraine and showing buildings made by Polish
architects before II World War - the case is not that obvious and IMHO
should be carefully discussed - maybe even with help of professional

I don't know anythingh about current Ukrainian law - but if we assume that

a) Lviv was Polish before II world war
b) the architect was Polish citizen

The applicable copyrigh work for plans of builiding is rather Polish
than Ukrainian.

Acutally the bulidings are on Ukrainian soil - but the copyright is
not about physical objects but about the creative work of architect,
so in fact it doesn't matter where the physical object is actually
located to decide which law is applicable.
