    I don't think it differs from region to region. Maybe there are some nuances in the south (near the Ukrainian border) or in the west (near the Polish border). But personally I've never heard anything else than the phrases like:
    Прывітанне, як справы?
    Прывітанне, як жывеш?
    Прывітанне, як ты?
    or вітаю insted of прывітанне.
