The issue of protecting property rights today is one of the most important, and depends both on the state and in on the owners of these rights. Despite the fact that Ukraine strives to join the European Union, its legal system is still far from international standards. For example, if the owner of property does not possess at least initial knowledge in the field of protecting his rights, then his property may be at risk, problems may emerge not only from authorities, but also from other owners, entrepreneurs or legal entities. Another issue that should be noted is intellectual property, the concept and regulation of which is necessary for the successful development of the state and its investment attractiveness. The main goal of this paper is to analyze the status of the issue of property rights protection in Ukraine and create a development strategy that can be an important component of a national security strategy. In the paper, along with questions of legislative support of citizens` property rights, considered legislative methods of increasing the potential of enterprises and the level of social protection of the population. Based on the experience of protecting property rights in the European Union, it is shown that the basis for legal protection should be economic feasibility, and not the political situation of the executive and legislative branches. As a result, measures were developed with the help of which the legislative framework and human rights activities should be improved to the level of the EU countries, where special attention is paid to human rights, and, therefore, the property.
