First Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine is a government post of Cabinet of Ukraine. In an absence of the Prime Minister of Ukraine performs his or her duty[a] as the acting Prime Minister of Ukraine. In 1991 the post was grandfathered from the already existing First Deputy Chairman that was part of the Council of Ministers of the Ukrainian SSR.

In an absence of the First Vice Prime Minister, his or her functions are performed by other Vice Prime Ministers who are members of the Cabinet of Ministers. Similarly to Prime Minister, all office duties of the First Vice Prime Minister are supported by the Secretariat of Cabinet of Ministers.

Along with other members of Cabinet of Ministers, the newly appointed First Vice Prime Minister takes one and the same oath of office at a plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian parliament). According to the Article 10 (Law of Ukraine about the Cabinet of Ministers), a member of Cabinet of Ministers (except for the Prime Minister of Ukraine) who refuses to take the oath is considered as such who refused to accept the post. Every newly appointed member of already existing cabinet needs to take the oath at the next plenary session of Verkhovna Rada.
