On 22 February 2014, just after the "Maidan revolution", the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian parliament) appointed Nalyvaichenko (with the support of 333 of the 450 MPs) its Commissioner in charge of supervision over the Security Service of Ukraine replacing Oleksandr Yakymenko who was dismissed by parliament the same day. During his work as head of the Security Service of Ukraine, counterintelligence under the guidance of deputy head Victor Yahun received and published unequivocal evidence of the direct involvement of servicemen of the Russian Federation in hostilities in Ukraine.
As head of the Security Service of Ukraine, Nalivaychenko was noted by a number of resonant statements:
Immediately after July 17, 2014 in the Donetsk region was shot down Malaysian Boeing, Nalyvaichenko said that the plane was destroyed by Russian troops from the zenith of the Buk missile system. He also said that two possible fire spotters of "Buk" were detained. This information was refuted by the Russian Defense Ministry, saying that neither Russian military equipment nor military personnel crossed the state border with Ukraine, and fire controllers are used only for those weapons systems whose targets are located on the ground.
On February 19, 2015, Nalivaichenko accused the assistant to the President of the Russian Federation Vladislav Surkov in the leadership of the groups of the Kyiv snipers who fired on the Maidan February 20, 2014, referring to the interrogations of the officers of Alfa who gave "concrete evidence of the location of foreign sniper groups that aimed at both the protesters ... and the Ministry of Internal Affairs employees" and about the documentary evidence of these testimonies. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia declares the statements of the Ukrainian special services worthy of psychiatric treatment and speculation on the death of people.
In April 2015, Nalivaichenko said the Security Service of Ukraine "does not need to invent anything new, it is important to build on the traditions of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and UPA in the 1930-1950 years."
Later political career

In July 2017, Spravedlivost created a "joint action headquarter" with the political party Movement of New Forces of Mikheil Saakashvili.On 3 January 2019, Spravedlivost nominated Nalyvaichenko as their candidate in the 2019 Ukrainian presidential election.

In the summer of 2009, it turned out that Kislinsky Andrey Nikolayevich, who, on Nolivaychenko's suggestion, was appointed deputy head of the Security Service, has a fake diploma.
In early September 2013, the General Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine filed criminal proceedings against Nalivaichenko, at the request of three people's deputies from the Communist Party of Ukraine - Sergei Balandin, Oleg Bukhovtsi, Mikhail Gerasimchuk, for the disclosure of state secrets during his tenure as Chairman of the Security Service of Ukraine, in particular, allowing the CIA to review documents without proper procedure. Nalyvaychenko called this "denunciation of Communists" and "schizoid NKVDism".
In November 2014, Nalyvaichenko's daughter, Olga Nalyvaichenko, started working in the legal department of the Victor Polishchuk's company Techenergotrade. After that, in early 2015, the Security Service of Ukraine, which at that time was headed by Nalyvaychenko, closed a criminal case into the illegal alienation by Victor Polischuk's structures of 94.67 hectares of state land belonging to the Brovarsky radio transmitting center.
In June 2015, another conflict situation with the GPU took place.
