What are the rules for у and і at the beginning of a word becoming в and й? I thought it was whenever the previous word ends with a vowel, but in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights there are phrases like "вільними і рівними у своїй" which I would've expected to be "вільними й рівними в своїй".
