Summary/Abstract: Ukraine gained Independence thirty years ago. This fateful event in the development of the Ukrainian nation became at the same time a powerful challenge for the people of Ukraine in terms of their ability to purposefully and consistently build the basis for the realization of their sovereign rights. Further development has shown that the idea of ​​the inviolability of the value of Ukraine's sovereignty as a young European state has taken root in the minds of the vast majority of citizens. Profound changes have taken place in all spheres of life: from public consciousness to the national economy. The ability of Ukrainian society to resolutely resist the hybrid influence of the Russian Federation (RF), the desire to overcome the "gravity" of the eastern neighbor, the desire to build their own direction of European integration showed that Ukraine has achieved much greater success in gaining real sovereignty than most other post-Soviet countries. // Political and mental sovereignty must be logically continued in building a viable integrated and competitive national economy, which allows to fully realize the potential of independence for making and implementing sovereign decisions on the future development of the country and nation. The paradigm of perception of the country's independence must change: it is no longer a question of "independence from" but of "independence for" - independence for the implementation of a sovereign strategy of social development based on the realization of national interests, consolidated common vision of the future. // In the field of practical realization of the potential of sovereignty, Ukraine still has a long way to go. During the three decades of difficult, not always consistent, often contradictory progress that has taken place since Ukraine's independence, the economy has accumulated complex contradictions that are currently hindering the construction of an integrated vision of the future, proper consolidation of efforts to achieve it.
