Main trends and experience of activities of the international organizations in Ukraine are considered. Crucial attention is paid to the goals and projects of international organizations Ukraine is a member thereof. Ukraines participation in the international intergovernmental organizations and Ukrainian activities of such organizations as the United Nations and its specialized agencies, the Council of Europe and the OSCE are studied, since they are the factors having mutual influence on and contributing to adaptation of the political system of Ukraine to the contemporary democratic standards of human rights and freedoms.
