Minska (Ukrainian: Мінська) is a station on Kiev Metro's Kurenivsko-Chervonoarmiyska Line. The station was opened on November 6, 1982 in the Obolonskyi Raion of Kiev. It was designed by I.L. Maslenkov, T.A. Tselikovska, and F.M. Zaremba. The station takes its name from the Minskyi Raion (now Obolonskyi Raion) in which it is situated.

The station is located shallow underground and is the first Kiev Metro station with a vaulted roof without column support. Along the tracks, on the ceiling, and above the entrance to the station's hall is a colorful motif, depicting flowers. The station is accessible by passenger tunnels; one leading to the Obolon'skyi Prospect, and the other — to Marshala Tymoshenko Street.
