Abstract: 

The purpose of the research, which results are set out in the article, was to analyze the complex threats and challenges that Ukraine faced during the years of independence. The attention is focused on the fact that the executive authorities did not pay attention to improving the management system and modernizing the directions of the actions of the management system as a whole. To understand the processes occurring in the state, the analysis of the positions taken by the country by individual and integral indicators was carried out. These indicators characterize various aspects of economic, social development, social and demographic situation, and the nature of interaction between society and nature. The dynamics of individual indicators for the period since the proclamation of Ukraine’s independence was investigated, and the main factors and root causes that determined the features of the country’s development during the period were discovered.
