Hideous Azerbaijan/Ukrainian visa snafu- urgent advice needed!

So, I just flew from Kiev to Baku. I had a single-entry visa to Ukraine, and I'm an Australian passport holder. I arrived at Baku airport to discover that Azerbaijan has chosen this morning to stop issuing visas on arrival (the airline didn't know this, nor did many of the airport staff in Baku). My choices are: get deported back to Ukraine, or buy an onward ticket from Baku to wherever will take me.
Does anyone know if Ukraine will allow me to re-enter? I don't want to get on a plane back to Kiev only to be denied entry there... The Baku airport immigration staff assure me that it will be fine but I'm not sure that I trust them for some reason.
I have been in touch with Australia's nearest embassies but they can't do a whole lot.
Anyone been in a situation like this?
