Belarus–Ukraine relations (Belarusian: Беларуска-ўкраінскія адносіны, Ukrainian: Українсько-білоруські відносини, Russian: Белорусско-украинские отношения) are foreign relations between Belarus and Ukraine. Before 1991, both countries were part of the Soviet Union and before then of the Russian Empire, the Second Polish Republic, and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Today, the two countries share an 891 km border.

Belarus has an embassy in Kiev and an honorary consulate in Lviv. Ukraine has an embassy in Minsk and a general consulate in Brest. Both countries are full members of the Baku Initiative and Central European Initiative.

An agreement on the state border between Belarus and Ukraine signed in 1997 was to be submitted to the Belarusian parliament for ratification after Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko and former Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko finished the process of the formalization of the border issues between the two states early November 2009.[1]
