Author(s): Nataliya M Onishchenko, Serhii O Suniehin

The issues of legal and moral (ethical) support of Ukrainian public servants’ activities are studied in the article. The emphasis is placed on the gaps in legal regulation of public service in Ukraine and on the doctrinal interpretation of several ways to fill them. The role and meaning of moral (ethical) regulation of public servants’ activities, and international experience of its proper support as well, are described in general terms. It is concluded that formation of effective public service institute in Ukraine is impossible without its moral (ethical) constituent, and until public servants realize moral principles of operation of any social unit, and society at large.
