Austria–Ukraine relations (Ukrainian: Українсько-австрійські відносини, German: Osterreich-Ukraina Beziehungen) are foreign relations between Austria and Ukraine. Both countries established diplomatic relations in 1992. The Treaty of Brest-Litovsk in 1918 became the first major international document with the Austrian nation.
Historically, a big portion of West Ukraine (Galicia, Carpathia and Northern Bukovina) were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, today consisting of: Lviv Oblast, Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast, Ternopil Oblast, Chernivtsi Oblast and Zakarpattia Oblast. During the World War I Ukraine was occupied by the Central powers military force (including the Austrian military) that drove Bolsheviks out of the country.
