When they use Ukrainian frame in Russia/Ukraine, they just use the standard Dadant foundation turned 90 degrees.
No one ever complained of bees having no brood.
Somehow they still have bees, while doing it ALL wrong.

Here is a good video of a guy flipping the Dadant frames into Ukrainian hive (and vs. versa).
It works and I would not sweat it. I have done it many times.

Besides, they don't build hexagons anyway.
They build all kinds of shapes oriented in many different ways if you let them.
They don't care to keep proper apexes on anything as top bar keepers will confirm.
