Ukrainian citizens need a transit visa (type C) only if they leave the international transit zones at Zurich or Geneva international airport (example: overnight in Zurich city en route to Canada) or if their flight route requires 2 stopovers within the Schengen zone (example: flight Kyiv-Geneva-Lisbon-Rio de Janeiro).
