To my newbie eyes, it looks a lot like a carcharias(?)/extinct sand tiger shark. However, after looking into it I don't see it being associated with Ukraine. Someone more knowledgeable should be along to help soon. Good luck.

Welcome to TFF,  Hopefully the shark experts among us will be able to help..

I assume that you found this tooth in Ukraine?  What region or geology? What other shark teeth are common where you found this one?

I see a rather pronounced cusp. In my hunting area (Florida, USA) that would identify this as most likely Sand Tiger,

What is the measurement scale -- How big is it.  Any and all info may help to ID...

Thank You very much, Jack!
Yes, I found this tooth in Western Ukraine, Lviv region. Ont this quarry is definitely Neogene, Miocene. But I found at least one tooth of Synechodus from older period, may be Cretaceus.
Scale in mm.
Thanks once more!
