The theoretical aspects of lustration, in particular different approaches to interpretation, specificity of the lustration practice in XX century, are investigated. The content of three bills on lustration, sent to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in 2005, is under analysis. The article gives a proof that the lustration practice in XX century is a significant mechanism of a systemic transformation, which provides the legitimacy of “new” authorities in transitional period, but actually the lustration problem had never been an actual political trend during the period of independence of Ukraine. It exists entirely in the sphere of the right-radical and the populist political unions parties, which have a particular purpose to use lustration procedures to settle political and personal scores with their opponents.
