The issues of ensuring the independence of judicial power, as well as adherence to the judicial ethics by the repositories of judicial power, have been, remain and will be a priority for any country trying to integrate itself into the European Union. Such states also include Ukraine, which, in pursuit of this goal, has undertaken responsibilities to strengthen democracy and the rule of law, as well as to ensure respect for human rights and independence of the court. As a result, in 2016, the Great Judicial Reform was launched in Ukraine, which also covered the issues of disciplinary responsibility of judges. The experience of Ukraine that was analyzed in this research can be useful both for countries that are on the path of European integration and for the countries that are the members of the European Union as well.
