The intersection connects with which combine route within Ukraine. Coming through the city of Kiev it crosses Dnipro at Paton's bridge and continuing towards Brovary Parkway by Voziednannya Parkway. Coming from there the highway goes around Brovary (one branch goes through the city and rejoins the route), then goes around Kozelets crossing a river and continuing north. Not far north from Kozelets splits north of Kipti traveling east by Highway , while continues north towards Chernihiv. Near village of Yahidne, south of Chernihiv, spurs with one branch and going west and then north around Chernihiv crossing another river; and second branch continues without deviation through the city, crossing the same river as the main route and after 13.7 km rejoins it north of Chernihiv. Shortly after Chernihiv goes right through the village of Ripky with numerous private homes located close to the road. After Ripky the next important settlement is Novi Yarylovychi that is located just south of the border with Belarus. The border, however, is located about 10 kilometres (6 mi) north of the settlement past the village of Skytok. The section from Kiev to Chernihiv is a dual carriageway, from Chernihiv it continues as a single carriageway.
