The article tracks the dynamics of protest practices in Ukrainian society in a period after so called 'Orange revolution'. The author selects the structural, socio-psychological and resource mobilization approaches to explanation of the protest behavior factors. Upon this ground, these factors are aggregated in two explanatory models. Structural factors form the model of social disruption. At the same time the resource mobilization and socio-psychological factors in an ensemble form the model of civil voluntarism. The author advances two hypotheses about the factors of the protest practices determination. In order to clarify these hypotheses, he applies the method of binary logistic regression. An analysis has proved that civil activity caused by events of 'Orange revolution' was conditioned by regional and geopolitical dissidences, but later on the protest practices were determined mainly by resource and socio-psychological stimuli. The results of analysis reveal that the value and world view stratification of society has not influenced the protest behavior. These developments can explain to some extent the absence of serious social conflicts in Ukraine.
