The problem of protection of disabled people in Ukraine is of particular importance in connection with the continuous growth of their quantity in the general structure of the population.

In order that disabled people could exercise fully the rights, bodies of prosecutor's office of area during 2008-2009 carried out inspections of implementation of laws concerning disabled people.

But, not in view of the taken measures of public prosecutor's reaction, violation of laws in the sphere of social protection of disabled people have rather widespread character, and, as a result, the rights of disabled people of rather housing, pension and medical support, preferential journey in transport and so forth are violated.
For example, executive authorities didn't create appropriate conditions for easy access of disabled people to objects of infrastructure. From 5 600 objects only 5 433 are equipped with ramps which don't meet the requirements of the legislation.
Public prosecutor's checks testify to a violation of the law from managements of social protection of the population when providing disabled people with technical and other means of rehabilitation, at implementation of compensation payments on gasoline, repair and maintenance of cars, on transport service and sanatorno - resort treatment.
