Is there a recommended online Ukrainian-Ukrainian dictionary for native Ukrainian speakers, where I can write a word and get interpretation or definition in Ukrainian language? (Such as Cambridge dictionary for English for example).

    I would consider approving another answer cause @follower clearly gave you much more links to work with.

This type of dictionaries is called тлумачний словник (explanatory dictionary).

Try these ones, they are similar to Cambridge dictionary:

    Both specified links (http://sum.in.ua and https://www.slovnyk.ua/index.php) actually refer to the same dictionary — Dictionary of the Ukrainian Language in 11 volumes by Potebnia Institute of Linguistics (issued in 1970–1980), which is accessible through many different websites nowadays.

Famous, official & the fullest, most people give credit to it:

Dictionary of the Ukrainian Language (DUL)

The others:

A site like slovnyk.ua is taking the source from DUL-11.
