This service is really perfect example for a lot of possible improvements in the different (especially governmental) services worldwide.

After Kyivstar closed in 2011 all of Beeline stations in Ukraine, there's no coverage of EDGE/GPRS for today. So if you have AT&T version of Kindle (the serial starts from B006) you have just one carrier - Ukrtelecom (Utel) that covers only 5% of Ukraine.
You can NOT even a possibility to choose what version of Kindle to buy. The Amazon sends an (american) B006 version and B00A (european) randomly.
The european B00A version have extremely much bigger coverage - about 90% through the Life and MTS operators.

I've contacted a support couple of times, but can't get any help. :(

No matters where you buy a Kindle, since new Amazon policy, free 3G traffic for Kindle 3 is limited to 50Mb per month now. It's really bad! :( No reason to buy a Kindle 3 anymore.
But you can still download by 3G the books you buying from Amazon store for free, or use a WiFi instead of 3G.
The coverage for Kindle in Ukraine is provided by Kyivstar and Trimob (ex Utel) now.

you might have her ask what formats those books are in as kindles can't read all formats

Yes, you can easily read ukrainian books on Kindle, all characters in fonts is supported by default.

And some words about file formats: you can use format converters, or library managers like Calibre to convert formats. Calibre works with cyrillic characters fine, for sure.
Or you can always use a free Amazon converter by sending a document to a specific email address on your account
After that Amazon sends converted file to your account. And you can download this file by WiFi (for free) or by 3G (for a small fee).
Look at "Manage Your Kindle" section at your Amazon account for more info.
