  5. "Він буде їхати у Одесу, якщо…

"Він буде їхати у Одесу, якщо завтра буде поїзд."

Translation:He will go to Odesa, if there is a train tomorrow.

Why is "He will go to Odessa if there will be a train tomorrow" incorrect?

Correct Ukrainian grammar: he [future] if [future]. Correct English grammar: he [future] if [present]

Example: we will go to the forest (future tense) if the weather is fine tomorrow (present tense).

Wrong: we will go to the forest (future tense) if the weather will be fine tomorrow (future tense, wrong in English)

Odessa should be written with double s. In Ukrainian there is a Simplification rule, but not in English
