Abstract: Systemic close definitions of the main society-science terms "society", "economy", "infocommunications", "sustainable development" have been presented, which is needed for employment of a systemic approach to designing and implementation of Ukraine's development ways. The diversity of definitions of these terms in publications and official documents leads to non-systemic setting of development goals and targets for both some countries and international development policy. The first part of the research presents concretized definitions of the terms "society", "economy" and "info-communications" got through a generalized analysis of publications. The concretization of the definition of the term "sustainable development" cannot be fulfilled today because of the sense alteration that the term has undergone in publications and international documents in the time flow. Its generalized definition that was done in 1987 in the report of the famous Brundtland Commission is only acknowledged. In line with the latest UN recommendations concerning the goals and targets of sustainable development, every country must design its own development strategy by detailing the sustainable development concept in accordance with its own conditions and possibilities. This kind of international policy, as shown by the results of the publications analysis, has long prevented from implementation of the sustainable development framework in the socio-economic practice. This results in the world's fast moving to the ecological-socio-economic collapse forecasted for the second half of the 21st century. The second part of the research based on the analysis of publications and close definitions of the main society-science terms, presents a systemic design of the goals and targets of Ukraine's development oriented to the most efficient preparation of the Ukrainian society to the coming world collapse, proceeding from the existing conditions and possibilities. The best way possible for Ukraine's development seems to be abandoning the liberal-market development strategy in favor of its own development strategy. This kind of strategy must aim to improve the social order on the principles of sustainable development and minimum consumption of resources.
