Thanks, but what are you talking about? Lion is traditional heraldic beast.
Never heard of that. Also the lion with swords on red background is supposed to be Finland I think.
Anyway, which Ukranian Duke/Prince/Principality/City used a lion?
The two biggest predecessors to Ukraine are Kiev (Kievan Rus') and Cossack state (Zaporozhie/Zaporozhian Sich').
So it makes sense to include a Cossack, but a Lion instead of Angel which is a symbol of Kiev? Seems strange.
That lion was used by Kingdom of Ruthenia. Then Palatinatus russiae and West Ukrainian People's Republic. This incarnation is rather strange - he has claws, but Ukraine wedged no aggressive wars, legs are too close to each other which signify lack of confidence.
