Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Міністерство екології та природних ресурсів України) was the main authority in the system of central government responsible for ecological monitoring and development of the country. The current Honcharuk Government (since 29 August 2019) merged the ministry into the Ministry of Energy and Coal Mining.[3]


This government institution was established back in 1967 as the State Committee of Nature Protection. In 1978, it was merged into the All-Union State Committee under the same name centered in Moscow. Following declaration of independence, the state committee was reorganized into the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Ukraine. In 1995-2000, the ministry also supervised the nuclear safety as Ministry of Environmental Protection and Nuclear Safety of Ukraine. In 2000, it switched to its current name until 2003 and recovered it again in 2010. In 2003-2010 it was the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Ukraine.


The ministry is headed by minister of Ecology and Natural Resources, first deputy, and other deputies to assist the minister. Ministry elects several state administrations representatives to coordinate operation of selected government companies.
