Always faithful!
— Ukrainian Naval Infantry motto

The Ukrainian Naval Infantry Corps (Ukrainian: Морська піхота України, romanized: Morsʹka pikhota Ukrayiny) is a branch of the Ukrainian Navy. It is used as a component part of amphibious, airborne and amphibious-airborne operations, alone or in coordination with formations and units of the Army in order to capture parts of the seashore, islands, ports, fleet bases, coast airfields and other coast objects from the enemy.

The Naval Infantry was created in on 23 May 1918 by Hetman Pavlo Skoropadskyi in order to better protect Ukraine's coastline. After the creation of the Ukrainian People's Republic and the ousting of Russian loyalists, the Naval Infantry was disbanded and used to create new marine units.

On 22 February 1993, two years after Ukraine achieved independence from the Soviet Union, the Naval Infantry was reformed to once again protect the Ukrainian coastline. From May 1996 until 1998, the Brigade was a part of the Ukrainian National Guard. In 1998, it was transferred to the Navy. In 2003, the Naval Infantry was reduced to a battalion as part of a program to reduce the number of brigades. In more recent history, the Naval Infantry partook in the War in Donbass and the 2014 Crimean crisis.
