As discussed Ukrainian nouns have a category of gender. Possessive pronouns in Ukrainian also have masculine, feminine and neuter singular forms, as well as a plural form which is the same for all genders.

Я - мій (m), моя (f), моє (n), мої (pl)
ТИ - твій (m), твоя (f), твоє (n), твої (pl)

ВІН - його (for all forms)
ВОНА - її (for all forms)
ВОНО - його (for all forms)

МИ - наш (m), наша (f), наше (n), наші (pl)
ВИ - ваш (m), ваша (f), ваше (n), ваші (pl)
ВОНИ - їхній (m), їхня (f), їхнє (n), їхні (pl)

In a Ukrainian sentence, possessive pronouns have the same form (number, gender and case) as the word they modify, except for the forms of 3rd person singular.

For example / наприклад:
мій день, ваш стіл, його брат
твоя сім'я, наша країна, його кімната
наше прізвище, моє ім'я, її місто
ваші студенти, її аспіранти

The interrogative possessive forms are:
чий? - masculine singular
чия? - feminine singular
чиє? - neuter singular
чиї? - plural
The interrogative possessive pronoun agrees in number, gender and case with the word to which it is referring.
For example / наприклад:
чий стіл?
чия кімната?
чиє вікно?
чиї студенти?
