The Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Міністерство інфраструктури України) functions as the main executive body that controls Ukraine's transportation infrastructure including roads, trains, and communications. The department is based on the former Transport and Communications Ministry and also oversees the implementation of government tourism policies.

In December 2010, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych announced that the former Transport and Communications Ministry (Ukrainian: Міністерство транспорту та зв'язку України) would be reorganized into the Ministry of Infrastructure. The head office was located in Kyiv.[4][5] On 12 May 2011, the Ministry of Infrastructure was approved as the successor of the Transport and Communications Ministry.[6]


The Ministry comprises a central body, led by the minister, his/her first deputy, and other deputies who assist the minister. The Ministry also consists of several state administrations that specialize in certain fields and coordinate operations of government companies.

The ministry supervises implementation of government policy in transport and communication sectors as well as security related to transport. Transport of fuel fossils (i.e. oil and gas) is related to the government ministry on energy and fuel, while most of security responsibility matters are supervised by Ministry of Interior or other state agencies.
