Vasnetsova A.S. - Criminological characteristics of the heads of organized crime groups related to terrorism (the first stage of criminological research)
pp. 37-63


Abstract: One of the most widespread directions of counterterrorism efforts is a targeted influence on the potential terrorists before they actually start their terrorist activity. To perform this complicated task, it is necessary to have the exact information about the characteristics of such personalities, which can be collected only by means of scientific interpretation of various significant data. It can help to find out what factors promote the formation of a personality of a terrorist and choose the measures aimed at their elimination thus preventing terrorist organizations from recruiting new members. The author studies such factors as the motive and the circumstances characterising the personality of a convict, which are subject to proving in the course of criminal proceedings according to part 1, article 73 of the Criminal Procedure Code of the Russian Federation. The author formulates the following conclusions: crimes of terrorism are ususally committed by young men (under the age of 30) with a low level of education; the increase of immigration to the Russian Federation leads to the increase of the number of the members of international terrorist organizations in the country; the reasons and  conditions leading to terrorist crimes are not being studied sufficiently enough; there is an interrelation between the criminological characteristics of terrorists’ personalities and the mechanisms of their involvement into terrorist activity, and the specificity of the roles performed by them in an organized crime group; the social sphere of regular terrorists is narrow, which determines their susceptibility to the terrorist ideology.

Vasnetsova A.S., Merkur'ev V.V. - Combating corruption-related crimes in the context of counterterrorism efforts pp. 31-39


Abstract: The authors study in details such aspects of the problem as the processes of criminal concrement of organized crime, corruption and terrorism, in which organized crime plays the role of initiating (defining) factor of emergence of corruption interconnections of government institutions and terrorist groups. It means that terrorist activity, possessing a range of common features typical for, among other things, organized crime, is impossible without corruption-related contacts in government institutions and self-government bodies. Therefore, long-term functioning of terrorist groups means the presence of a corruption element. The authors study the common patterns of using corruption-related practices by terrorists and substantiate the list of corruption-determined terrorist threats.The authors formulate the suggestions about the extension of the list of risks connected with the corruption-based financing of terrorism. Corruption in government institutions, local self-government bodies and security agencies is a fueler for the development of terrorism, acting, on the one hand, as a reason for its emergence, and on the other hand, as an indispensable condition of its existence. The recognition of corruption as an independent risk factor of the creation of favorable conditions for the financing of terrorism will help to improve counterterrorism efforts. The authors note that the terrorist threat increases with the level of corruption. Thus, the fight against corruption should remain one of the key directions of national policy, and the effectiveness of these counterterrorism efforts will affect the reduction of terrorist threat level for the state.
