The paper presents the diagnostic evidences and criteria of determination of neotectonically active fractures in the territory of the Ukraine. Spatial regularities of variation of the velocity gradients of neotectonic and contemporary crustal movements which are the main indicators of activation along fractures are characterized. Specific features of different regimes of contemporary movements along fractures are revealed.
