Highway M03 is a Ukrainian international highway (M-highway) connecting Kiev with Dovzhansky on the border with Russia, where it continues into Russia as the A270.[1] It is part of European route E40 from Kiev to Debaltseve at which it is part of European route E50 to the border with Russia.[2] At 844 km (524 mi), the M03 is the longest international state highway in Ukraine.

In Soviet times the M03 was part of the M19. Today, the highway stretches through five oblasts and ends at the border checkpoint at Dovzhansky which is part of Sverdlovsk Raion (Luhansk Oblast). The route connects Kiev and Kharkiv with the industrial region of Donbass. Part of the M03 between Kiev and Boryspil was reconstructed into an automagistral to handle higher traffic between Kiev and the Boryspil International Airport.

From Boryspil to Lubny, the road is a dual carriageway, thereon it continues as a single carriageway with some 2x2 sections.

Significant armed conflict has occurred on or near the eastern portions of the highway during the War in Donbass.
