Description:
Chief directorate of intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine () or ГУР (HUR), is Ukraine's military intelligence service. It is a subdivision of country's Defence Ministry and is under direct subordination to the Ministry of Defense, not the General Staff. The organization is one of the successors of the Soviet GRU.

Prior to 1994 it was called the Directorate of Military Strategical Intelligence (UVSR).

The current head of the Directorate was appointed in 2008 as colonel Viktor Hvozd. On August 22, 2008 he was promoted to Major-General, and later Lieutenant-General.

The Directorate was earlier headed by Ihor Smeshko, who later served as the Chief of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) (until 2005). The two agencies usually compete in their shadow political influence, and, supposedly, secret police and even foreign intelligence activities.

The agency's motto: "Statehood, professionalism, decency".
