To this question you can answer immediately simply by looking the video. It shows a real situation, in which the people want to affix the apostille in Ministry of Foreign Affairs, with it, it happens at 11:55 (5 minutes before the reception ending). All people in the queue will be stunned by the new that they will not be able to hand over the documents today, and, after standing in the queue for 2 hours, in the truest sense of the word, before "their nose" the window will close and they go home with the hope to have time to affix the apostille tomorrow.
Do you want to be in the list of those lucky people? If your answer is positive - you can apply yourself in the relevant ministry. But it should be noted that in addition to wasted time (working hours!), nerves and energy you will spend a tidy sum for transportation, meals, and that it is not unlikely for accommodation, as not the fact that you will be able to submit the documents on the first day. The picture below will help you to calculate "savings"...

Note, if you consider all factors - it is cheaper than having arrived in Kiev to deal with this procedure alone.
