This August I tried to do almost the same. Only difference is that I came from the Romanian side.
I cycled with a friend of mine along the Danube from Budapest to Sulina. From Sulina we went by bike to Periprava.
From Periprava we wanted to cross the border to Ukraine to reach Odessa.
From a local in Sulina we heard that it might be possible with some luck.
In Periprava we talked for 15 minutes with two border guards.
After that we had to draw the conclusion that we could not cross the border.
The guards said from the beginning that it was not possible for us to cross the border.
We tried to change their minds, but there was no flexibility.
The reason is still not clear. They blamed Ukraine for not letting us through.
And they also said that Periprava is too small to cross the border there.
I think it is due to the fact that Romania belongs to the EU and Ukraine not.
Border control is therefore very strict and crossing the border is only possible at well organised border stations.
Anyway I would not take the risk to cross the border in Wylkove.It's probably not going to work.
Nearest possibility to cross the Romanian border is to first enter Moldova and from there enter Galati, Romania.
