Not more than a single coy. Now the piority in heavy forces is modernisation of T-64. If you are intrested in more specific info (not very specific, but including number of brigades and equpment), I'll find an a article in nTW Magazine about Ukrainian Orbat and situation of their armed forces.

(1)Considerable numbers of T-54/55 main battle tanks have been put into storage or were sold in 1994-95; data on T-64 numbers has been reassessed in the light of details emerging from Kiev. The numbers of Russian-built T-80 and the locally developed T-84/T-90 tanks is estimated.
(2)The total figure for tanks disclosed at the CFE Treaty meeting in December 2003 was 3,784.

A very respectable set of figures and their artillery and army aviation numbers are not too bad either.
Brigades: Each armored or mechanized brigade consist of 4 battalions (or battalion battle groups), a HQ battalion, a mixed artillery battalion with BM-21 and 2S3, and a AA battalion armed usually with Striela-10 and ZSU-23-4 (8-12 of each one), engineers coy, supply coy.
Battalions: Armored battalion have 3 tank coys and 1 mechanized coy. Mechanized battalion have 1 tank coy and 3 mechanized coys. In each mechanized brigade one or two battalions are equipped with BMP-1 or 2, other battalions have BTR-70 or 80. Each battalion have a battery of 2S1 SPA or towed D-30 and a battery of man portable SAMs (Striela 2M or Igla). In addition each mech. bat. have a AT battery and a 120mm mortars battery.
I did some photos of OoB form nTW, so I’ll attaché them later. There will be the answer for you question.
Location: Under your bed. No seriously, take a look.
They're not likely to get much of either one, given the atrocious situation in the armed forces. Even the battallion level T-90 procurement in Russia is considered ridiculously low. Procurement of a few tanks annually will have practically no effect on the over force structure, or equipment. Essentially once the motor resources of those tanks start running out, the Ukranians are screwed.
EDIT: By the way an actual ORBAT, not just equipment listings, with divisions and deployments, would be greatly appreciated.
