What's the difference between й and ї in Ukrainian?
To my current perception the latter sounds like "йi".

That's exactly how it should sound! Letter ї corresponds to two sounds: й+і. The difference between ї and other similar letters (я, ю, є) is that it never "loses" its "й". So before ї there always should be either a vowel or an apostrophe
