For the first time viral disease of elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.) was detected in Ukraine. Symptomatology of the disease and morphological properties of the virus are studied. Based on scientific literature data, screening of viruses that can infect elderberry plants in Ukraine is conducted. Antigens of PVY, PVM, SMV, AMV, and BYMV in elderberry plants with symptoms of viral disease were not detected.
