    Hello Bohdan,

    Here is a sample code that illustrates how to get permissions for a user( you get permissions for all roles under which this user belongs)

    ISecuredBase secObject = Telerik.Cms.Security.GlobalPermissions.Instance;
           IDictionary<string, ApplicationPermission> permissions = secObject.GetPermissions(UserManager.Default.RoleProvider.Name);
           ApplicationPermission permission = new ApplicationPermission();
           string[] roles = UserManager.Default.RoleProvider.GetRolesForUser("MyUserName");
           ApplicationPermission curr;
           foreach (string role in roles)
               if (UserManager.IsRoleUnrestricted(UserManager.Default.RoleProvider.Name, role))
                   permission = new ApplicationPermission(PermissionState.Unrestricted).Union(permission);
               else if (permissions.TryGetValue(role.ToLower(), out curr))
                   permission = curr.Union(permission);
           if (permissions.TryGetValue("everyone", out curr))
               permission = curr.Union(permission);
    // here check for the global permission you are looking for - for example CmsAccess
    GlobalPermission cmsGlobalPermission = new GlobalPermission(GlobalRights.CmsAccess);
    // here you can calll cmsGlobalPermission.IsSubsetOf(permission);

    All the best,
