This article is devoted to the identification of issues that arise in the implementation of reform regulations appoint a person to the post of prosecutor in Ukraine. The necessity of improvement in this area, as this will help to realize the right of citizens for positions of prosecutor in Ukraine. Unresolved and after reforms in the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office remains one more problem: the necessity of performance indicators in the prosecutor’s office, which, in turn, affects a very small proportion of acquittal sentences. At the same time, the performance of indicators is directly associated with bonuses for employees and assessment of their success.
