Content analysis of the Enshrined Semantic Foundations of the National Interests in the Strategic Legal Documents

The results of the study of the enshrined semantic foundations of the national interests in the strategic legal documents, which was conducted using the method of content analysis, are presented. Correspondance of the semantic content of the national interests to the strategic content of legislation, and the presence of main verbal markers of the national interests in the mentioned documents (those that have the most significant meaning), is studied. It is determined that at the level of the legislative acts, the government policy of Ukraine is not aimed enough at the implementation of the majority of the declared national interest. It is concluded that the legal system is based on the defined national interest implemented in practice in various areas of social and political life.
Keywords: national interests of Ukraine, strategic legal documents, content analysis, semantic meaning, legal system.
