No, thank you. I could be wrong, but "no, thank you" wasn't accepted for this question.

It's a normal Ukrainian sentence. You have to thank the person for offering you something anyway and than you may say that you don't need that :)

So is it like the English phrase "I'm fine, thank you" (a polite way of declining an offer)? It's like saying: "I don't want anything, but thank you for offering."

e.g.

"Would you like some more fish?" "No. I'm fine, thank you."

"Ви хочу більша риба?" "Ні. Дякую, я не хочу."

Does it work like this?

It said I was wrong with "Thank you, I don't want any" even though that's what I'd say in English

When I worked in a nursing home many years ago,an old woman who was 99, used to say this often, so this sentence is already familiar to me. I just didn't know how to write it.

A determiner like "any" would seem to best complete this phrase/idea - "Thanks, I don't want any." Does Ukrainian not have these? If it does,why is it not used here?

I do not hear "Д" at the start of the sentence. I hear "якую"
