The Party of Greens of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Партія Зелених України, Partija Zelenykh Ukrainy, PZU), a green party, was founded in 1990[2].

The party is successor of the Green World Association (founded December 1987[3]) and under that name participated in the Ukrainian parliamentary elections of 1990 as part of the Democratic Bloc. [2] The Green World Association quickly transfomed itself into the Party of Greens of Ukraine.

In 1998, the Ukrainian Greens got 5,5% of the votes and 19 seats in the Verkhovna Rada, the Ukrainian parliament. This success couldn't be repeated in the 2002 election, in which the Ukrainian Greens missed out with 1,3 %. At the 2007 parliamentary elections the party failed with 0.40 % to enter the parliament.

The party claims to have about 80,000 members.

Its main priorities are the alteration of anti-ecological attitudes in the economic system, the reconstruction of the social system, and the protection of human rights.

The Party has been a member of the European Green Party since January 1994.
