The Supreme Court of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Верховний Суд України, Verkhovny Sud Ukrayiny) is the highest judicial body in the system of courts of general jurisdiction in Ukraine.

The Court derives its authority from the Constitution of Ukraine, but much of its structure is outlined in legislation.



The Court consists of several judicial chambers (criminal, civil, administrative, and arbitration cases). A separate panel considers military cases.

Appointments to the Court are made by the parliament and have no fixed time limit, nor is there a fixed number of appointments allowed. But each member of the Court (as far as each judge in Ukraine) is obligated to retire at the age of 65.

The Chairman of the Supreme Court is elected to office and dismissed from office by the Plenary Assembly of the Court by secret ballot.


The Court was originally established on March 11, 1923.

The overall trust in the Court in Ukraine is very low.[1]
