Main actors in astronomy research in the country  There are 7 Research Institutes in the structure of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NAS of Ukraine), 2 Research Institutes in the structure of the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sport of Ukraine (MESYS of Ukraine); 15 astronomical observatories and Departments in the structure of the Universities of the MESYS of Ukraine; 1 Private Astronomical Observatory play a main role in the development and teaching Astronomy in Ukraine.
The XPM Catalog  Absolute proper motions of 280 million stars distributed all over the sky without gaps in the magnitude range 10m < V <20m on the basis of combined data from 2MASS and USNO-A2.0 catalogues.
MAO NASU Plate Archive   Digital archive of MAO NAS of Ukraine (GPA) comprises data of about 26 thousands of direct photographic plates, obtained with 14 instruments in 9 observational sites, and more than 2000 digital images of different resolution available via GPA search pages.
Mykolaiv AO Plate Archive   Digital archive of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) includes astronomical data obtained during observations with photo plates and CCD frames. The digitization of the archive is near its completion. Digitized images are available via a web browser and Aladin.
AO LNU Plate Archive   Astronomical Observatory of Lviv National University (AO LNU) is the owner of valuable archive that stores approximately 8 000 of photographic plates from 1939, including nearly 6 000 direct images of the northern sky. The archive is partly digitized and images are available via the joint search pages of AO LNU and MAO NASU.
IRA UTR-2 catalogue of RS   The very-low frequency sky survey of discrete sources has been obtained in the Institute of Radio Astronomy of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences (Kharkov, Ukraine) with the UTR-2 radio telescope at a number of the lowest frequencies used in contemporary radio astronomy within the range from 10 to 25 MHz.
Mykolaiv AO stellar catalogues   27 astrometric stellar catalogues of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) in VOTable format are available for downloading
AO KNU Historic Plate Archive   AO KNU glass collection contains about 20 thousand photographic plates. Historical part of the archive was received during 1898-1946 and now is being digitized.

Stellar catalogues in VOtable format:
Catalogue of positions, proper motions and BJ -magnitudes of 2 million stars (FONAC) (1985-2000)    CDS, Strasbourg

FONAC is the catalogue of positions, proper motions and BJ -magnitudes for 2, 004, 701 stars of the Astrographic Catalogue (AC) including the (B - V )J -magnitudes for 1, 712, 420 stars and (B - R)J -values for 1, 779, 442 stars covering the northern sky between declinations +90 and -2 degrees. The average epoch of positions is 1988.19. The catalogue is based on measurements of more than 1700 plates which were taken with the wide- angle astrograph of the Main Astronomical Observatory in Kiev within the FON (Photographic Survey of the Northern Sky) project.

Catalogue of positions, proper motions and BV -magnitudes of 2 million stars (ASCC-2.5)    CDS, Strasbourg

The All-Sky Compiled Catalogue of 2501313 stars (ASCC-2.5) with the limiting magnitude V=12-14 is a result of a merging of star lists from present day large high-precision catalogues from space (Hipparcos- Tycho family catalogues: Hipparcos main catalogue including Multiple System Annex [I/239], Tycho-1 [I/239], Tycho-2 [I/259], ACT-RC [I/246], TRC [I/250]) and ground-based (PPM-N [I/146], PPM-S [I/193], PPM-add [I/208], CMC11 [I/256]) observations and reduction to standard systems of corresponding stellar data. The data from the Tycho-2 Spectral Type Catalog [III/231], and the 2MASS All-Sky Catalog of Point Sources [II/246] are added.

Catalogue of stellar astrometric characteristics with astrophysical supplements

in Main Meridional Section of the Galaxy (MEGA-G).

Astrometric catalogue with astrophysical supplements was obtained as the result of carrying out the observational programme of stars located at Main Meridional Section of the GAlaxy (MEGA). The catalogue contains 26436 stars. (Kharchenko, 1987)

Catalogue MEGA-G reduced to the Hipparcos system (MEGA-H).    CDS, Strasbourg

The catalogue MEGA-H is a result of a merging of star lists from the catalogue of stellar proper motions with respect to galaxies in 47 selected areas near the Main MEridional Section of the GAlaxy (MEGA-G) (Kharchenko 1987) and from All-sky Compiled Catalogue of 2.5 Million Stars (ASCC-2.5) (Cat. I/280A). Proper motions from the catalogue MEGA-G were reduced to the Hipparcos system by means of common with the ASCC-2.5 stars. The compiled proper motions in the Hipparcos system and their standard errors were computed as the weighted means. Equatorial coordinates are reduced to the equinox J2000 and epoch 1991.25. The catalogue MEGA-H contains 18169 stars.
