Is there any approach to get currently used version of kendoUI?
This could be useful in cases when source code is customized and it's sensitive to some particular version.

Although the Kendo UI version is stated in a comment at the beginning of the JS file, the Kendo UI scripts do not provide a property or a method to check the version. Providing such thing would require either regular manual modification in the source or change in our build procedure. The latter is not difficult to implement, so I will log it as a feature request.
I am not sure what your scenario is and why you may not know the exact Kendo UI version that is currently deployed, but usually each major Kendo UI version is compatible with a specific major jQuery version. So checking the jQuery version may turn out an acceptable way to find out the Kendo UI version.
In case you are not using the Kendo UI CDN and can modify the Kendo UI source, you can inject a custom property, according to your preferences.

Thank you very much for your suggestions, Dimo.
I'm wondering about how to check version for scenario when there is some code what was written taken into consideration specific KendoUI version, so in future, when version will be upgraded I want to make developer sure to double check whether that code will remain valid.
As for me, at the moment the most suitable approach - is to add some property, where to store currently deployed version.
