It was established on 11 January 2002 as the Archiepiscopal Exarchate of Donets'k - Kharkiv, on territory split off from the then Archiepiscopal Exarchate of Kyiv - Vyshhorod (which became the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Kyiv).

On 2 April 2014 the Exarchate was renamed as Ukrainian Catholic Archiepiscopal Exarchate of Donetsk, having lost territory to establish the Ukrainian Catholic Archiepiscopal Exarchate of Kharkiv.
