Boryspil Raion (Ukrainian: Бориспільський район, translit.: Boryspil's'kyi raion) is an administrative raion (district) in east-central Kiev Oblast of Ukraine. Its administrative center is the town of Boryspil, which is incorporated separately as a town of oblast significance and does not belong to the raion. The raion's area totals 146 km².

The Boryspil raion is located in the east-central area of the Kiev Oblast, and has a total area of 146 km².

On the raion's southern border flows the Dnieper River (Dnipro). Near the river, the raion's lowest elevation points are located. Other rivers that flow through the raion include: the left tributaries of the Dnieper: Pavlivka, Mlen, Ikva, and the right tributaries of the Trubizh River: Bochechky, Karan', Vohnyscha, Krasylivka, Al'ta, and Il'tytsia. All of the raion's rivers flow through the low-elevation territory, making all of the rivers flow more slowly. The rivers take their sources from winter snowfalls and seasonal rains. On the southern-most border of the raion is the Kaniv Reservoir, which provides electric supply to nearby areas.
