The "Spectrum-UV" Project, an international ultraviolet space observatory, is described. The observatory will include 1.7 meter aperture ultraviolet telescope equipped with a set of spectrometers of high, medium, and low resolutions and an imaging camera operating in the 912—3500 Ё wavelength region. High-apogee (up to 300 000 km from the Earth) orbit will make it possible to carry out long time series of astrophysical observations.
