The Smolensk Governate ( ) or Government of Smolensk was a governorate (guberniya) of the Russian Empiremarker, established on December 29, 1708 (December 18, Julian calendar). On July 28, 1713 (July 17), Smolensk Governorate was abolished and its territory was divided between Moscow and Riga Governorates. The governorate was re-established in 1726. In 1775, it was included, along with parts of Moscow and Belgorod Governorates, into Smolensk Vice-Royalty (namestnichestvo).

After the Boslhevik Revolution, Smolensk Governorate was base of independent Western Oblast/Western Commune, Soviet Socialist Republic of Belarus, Lithuanian–Belorussian Soviet Socialist Republic(Litbel), and finally incorporated into the Russian SFSR.
