I'd like to buy Gigabyte AB350 Gaming motherboard and AMD Ryzen 5 2600 CPU.
This is not for gaming and I need just basic GPU.

Oboard graphics:
Integrated Graphics Processor:
1 x DVI-D port, supporting a maximum resolution of 1920x1200@60 Hz
* The DVI-D port does not support D-Sub connection by adapter.
1 x HDMI port, supporting a maximum resolution of 4096x2160@24 Hz
* Support for HDMI 1.4 version.
Maximum shared memory of 2 GB
* Actual support may vary by CPU.

What does "Integrated Graphics Processor" mean?
Is there really integrated onboard GPU that I can use without any discrete graphic card?
Or that video connectors are only for some APU?
If the first answer is true, should it work with Ryzen 5 2600?

Graphics is integrated into the processor versus having a separate chip on the board itself. Which means depending on the CPU choice the graphics can vary between nVidia and AMD.

As for the Ryzen 5 chip. Like mentioned in the page you linked.. "Check the CPU compatibility list", if Ryzen 5 has been tested, there should be a list of chip model numbers that have been found to work. If not on that list, they have not been tested thus no assurances made that the chip is compatible.

If you are looking for old school VGA graphics you will need an add-in graphics card (not sure if they are even available).

The specifications chart for that motherboard does show it having on-board (integrated) graphics, sharing a portion of main memory. The on-board graphics is part of the main CPU, using one core or more.. depending on graphics needs. Almost all gaming consoles have the same intent. Fewer discrete components, an all-in-one design. Modern CPU designs have multiple cores, some more than 8. The cores share the data processing and can be used for video rendering if needed.
As to sharing main memory, the upper portion of main system memory is semi-dedicated to video needs. Leave a maximum amount of memory for the OS needs. Going beyond 25% total memory amount for the 'video aperture' can slow overall performance.
Don't expect great video results from high resolution or low refresh rates. Generally best is perhaps 70 HZ that does not interact with the AC mains frequency and cause flicker in response to area lighting.
You can always add a discrete video card or other feature, but it has to be compatible to the standards of the motherboard.
Same too with any optional CPU or memory. Best to go with what is recommended from the provider, via the QVL (qualified vendor list) at the site. Some CPU options may not work properly, or cause damage. There may be revisions to the design of the motherboard, so ensure you check for the exact identity.
Older format VGA monitors may not work ( D-sub) as indicated in specs chart with the DVI-D video port. Ensure your monitor has the DVI-D or HDMI feature.
In re to audio needs, if going with digital audio out, ensure the speakers can accept that format. Regular analog speakers cannot.
One critical factor in any computer setup is the PSU. Go only with a top-rated brand, with a bit more power output than needed. This ensures a more stable power feed. A PSU will never "push" more power than needed.
