Abstract: The article contains a substantiation of the financial and economic conditions of rural development in Ukraine. An analysis of the research of domestic and foreign scientists on the issues of rural development is carried out. It is established that rural development is an integrated combination of agricultural production with other types of activities in rural areas, which together form the economic basis of a qualitative living environment, social and cultural growth, and ecological safety for rural residents. The experience of rural development in the member countries of the EU is studied based on the official data from the European Commission. An investigation of the current state of budget financing of agriculture in Ukraine, showing significant gaps in this direction, determined by the lack of a consistent and complex budget support of farmers, partial financing, approved programs, not full or inappropriate use of budget funds was carried out. The analysis of the main financial and economic indicators of rural development in Ukraine showed that rural areas and rural population have significant problems, which are primarily connected to the lack of workplaces, decent wages, proper social and domestic infrastructure and normal living conditions in rural areas, etc. The evaluation of financial and economic conditions of rural development is carried out using the methods of correlation-regression analysis based on the data of the Office for National Statistics of Ukraine (2018) and Ministry of Finance of Ukraine. The state of budgetary financing of rural development is analysed. Priorities for rural development in Ukraine are identified. Tools for ensuring the financial provision or rural development are suggested; these tools are able to influence the growth of local economy and financial self-sufficiency of rural communities, the increase of the level and quality of life in rural areas, maintenance of ecological balance, preservation and improvement of local territories.
