The modern world is constantly changing and the latest trends of Western psychologists are the development of such direction as robotic psychology, which focuses on the study of compatibility between humans and robotic creatures. Over the past decade, researchers have investigated various aspects of this interaction: from the general level of perception to the specific emotional and tactical levels. In Ukraine, robotic psychology only starts its formation and the main goal of our study was to gather information about the attitude of Ukrainian youth to robots and people with robotic prosthetics or sensory amplifiers. This article is especially relevant because during the years of the military conflict in the East of Ukraine, the number of people with the trauma of the limbs and various sensory organs that needed robotic prosthetics or amplifiers increased. In May-June 2018 a mass survey of Ukrainian schoolchildren was conducted by the Laboratory of Psychology of Mass Communication and Media Education at the Institute of Social and Political Psychology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine in all regions of Ukraine, in which 1439 students of the 8th and 10th forms of general education schools took part. According to the results of the study, we have identified three main roles for robots in which Ukrainian youth are ready to treat them well: as a home helper, a friend and an extra brain (improving intelligence and memory). But we found that less than half of the sample of the subjects was prepared to treat the person whose limbs were replaced by computer prosthetics well. The most tolerant are to treat people with robotic prosthetics in the north of Ukraine, with the lowest level of tolerance among respondents from the Eastern regions. These results show the need in the wide introduction of various information companies and educational programs to increase the tolerance of young people to people with robotic prosthetics.
