Pronunciation of я between two soft consonants

I wonder how to pronounce я between two soft consonants. Someone of Ukraine told me to pronounce it as [æ] but that is more like a Russian rule. Russian пять seems to be pronounced like [pʲætʲ] (according International Phonetic Alphabet].

So, лялька should be pronounced like [ˈlʲælʲkɑ] or [ˈʎæʎkɑ]. I wasn't aware of it, but there might be more rules in Ukrainian that exist also in Russian.

As in any colloquial l language there are unwritten rules only only locals use it. This is why a person picks up your particular accent or inflection
