I have the main UI thread where context available of course. And I am tring to implement AsyncTask descendent. In corresponding doInBackground method I have not access to my UI context respectivly. Resources is needed for URL building . I put some path parts into string resource.

It would be better to put your URL building blocks in String constants in Java so that you avoid the overhead of loading a resource.
