Abstract: Current state of atmospheric air on the territory of Ukraine and its regions has been analyzed within specified direction of scientific research. Based on the Law of Ukraine "On Air Protection", a list of air conservation measures at enterprises has been identified. In terms of previously developed theoretical and methodological approaches, an index of ecological modernization of air of regions of Ukraine for 2010-2013 has been calculated. The obtained results made it possible to distinguish 5 groups according to the modernization index: high, above average, average, below average and low. The detailed analysis allowed us to identify the areas that need special attention, such as western and eastern border regions, Dnipropetrovsk oblast and Kyiv city. Interdependency between the level of implementation of ecological modernization measures and the air quality state has been found and analyzed. Ecological modernization measures turned out to be inefficient. Directions for further research on the air conservation measures and prevention for specific objects have been considered which will reduce emissions of pollutants and stabilization of environmental safety level of the regions.
