The article considers main problems of disproportions of regional development in the context of social development of Ukraine. It identifies the complex of multidirectional factors that form prerequisites and threats of competitiveness of regions, caused by increase of the degree of their integration with various levels of socio-economic development and competitive capabilities. It conducts analysis of dynamics of Ukrainian rating by the index of global competitiveness for the period 2004 - 2013 and identifies main factors that resulted in the loss of competitive positions among basic strategic partners in the geo-economic environment. It proves that economic system is under influence of external and internal fluctuations, which surpass its adaptive possibilities and provoke the state of instability. On the basis of results of complex diagnostics of socio-economic development of Ukrainian regions of Ukraine the article identifies main competitive advantages, constraints and their aggregate influence upon the position of Ukraine in the global world economic environment. The article identifies the tendency of build-up disproportions of regional investment climate and growth of divergence of development of regions, which testifies to declarativity and imperfection of the regulatory and legal base on the issues of state regional policy, absence of effective mechanisms of regulation of interrelations of central bodies of executive authority with regions and regions between themselves, inefficiency of application of certain legislative instruments of stimulation of development of regions. The article justifies the strategy of spatial economic development of Ukraine on the basis of formation of the growth poles.
