Thanks for your patience.

Provided that they were legally married in Argentina according to the laws of Argentina then they would be regarded as being married under UK Law.

Again, provided that the obtained their divorce in Ukraine according to the laws of Ukraine then the divorce will be recognised by UK law. So, if they divorced in the normal way that Ukranian citizens divorced, most likely by obtaining some form of divorce decree (ie. A certificate stating that they are legally divorced according to Ukranian law) then it will be binding in the UK.

This being the case they would now be regarded as unmarried for the purpose of applying UK law.
