Palats "Ukrayina" (Ukrainian: Палац Україна) is a station on Kiev Metro's Obolonsko–Teremkivska Line. The station was opened on December 30, 1984, and is named after Ukraine biggest concert hall located near it. The architecture was designed by A.S. Krushynskyi, T.A. Tselikovska, N. Alyoskin, with other design by S. Kirichenko and R. Kirichenko.

Before 1991 the station was known as Chervonoarmiyska (Ukrainian: Червоноармійська, "Red Army") after the former name of the Velyka Vasylkivska street above it. All Soviet decorations in the station (thus including the ones pictured below) are due to be removed due to 2015 decommunization laws.[1]
