In total, Ukraine has eight victories in the swimming finals of the World Cup.

It should be noted that there are no Russian swimmers at the World Championships in Doha. World Aquatics has approved the criteria for Russians to acquire neutral status, but only in individual events and a maximum of one athlete per distance.
