Kobets P.N. - On the need to struggle against the key factors, promoting dissemination of extremist ideas in social networks, as an element of national security provision pp. 36-45


Abstract: The article contains the analysis of the key factors, promoting the dissemination of extremist ideas on the Internet, and the measures, which could help struggle against them. Special attention is given to the study of the circumstances and consequences of use of information technologies by extremist criminal groups. The author studies the problems of use of social networks by extremist groups for revolutionary propaganda, recruiting, training, fundraising, communication and target-setting for a strike. The research methodology is based on the elements of social networks analysis. The author also uses various general scientific approaches and ways of logical cognition: analysis and synthesis, abstraction, modeling, the formal-logical approach, comparative and express analysis. The author concludes that extremists use social networks for various purposes: firstly, for communication with other criminal groups and individual supporters of such ideas; secondly, for dissemination of ideas through direct recruiting of potential participants of extremist activity or manipulation of collective consciousness. The scientific novelty of the study consists in the author’s conclusion that despite the active struggle against extremism on the Internet, the question of its effectiveness is still open. To successfully solve the task of struggle against extremism, the whole range of complex measures should be taken, including effective social policy, formation of a well-thought system of political education for young people, creation of a socio-oriented legal system. This study can be used as a theoretical source and as a guide for action. Its results can be used by law-enforcement agencies for the struggle against extremism in social networks.

While most scholars pay special attention to the problem of passengers control, the author believes that any airport staff member has an opportunity to commit terrorist attack. The author concludes that at the present time, though with significant difficulties, the scientific ideas about terrorism prevention on air transport are being realized in law enforcement practice by means of control strengthening and the development of organizational anti-terrorist measures. The author analyzes airport security systems, detects their weak points and offers the ways to solve the problems using technical means. Practical importance of the study consists in the fact that the proposed recommendations can be used in information and analytical materials, in system organization and management work aimed at combating terrorism on air transport.

Kobets P.N. - Analysis of the nature of terrorism and its determining factors in the middle of the second decade of the 21st century


Abstract: The study is aimed at the further improvement of counterterrorism activities. The research object is social relations in the sphere of counterterrorism. The research subject is the analysis of the nature of terrorism and its roots, aimed at the development of unified approaches to the mechanism of its prevention. The analysis of the current tendencies of terrorist manifestations in the modern Russian society helps the author understand its nature and causes. The research methodology is based on the recent achievements in epistemology. The author applies general philosophical and theoretical methods (dialectics, the system method, analysis, synthesis, analogy, deduction, observation and modeling) and traditional methods of jurisprudence (formal logical). The author concludes that at the present time, terrorism is often considered as yet another security problem that can be easily solved: regular security measures, higher fences, more police officers and more severe punishment. The study demonstrates that upon the declaration of the war against terrorism, the significance of the problem increases, since such measures respond to the symptoms, not the causes. The author proves that year by year, it is more difficult for terrorists to organize attacks, therefore the new forms of terrorism become more terrible in their effect. The author notes that, despite a large number of scientific works, devoted to these issues, the problem is not studied well enough yet. This fact explains the topicality, novelty and practical importance of the problem under consideration. The scientific and practical importance is based on the fact that this study develops and specifies the casual complex theory, determining terrorism. The certain range of problems points at particular shortcomings of counterterrorism mechanism and defines the current state and some tendencies of its improvement. The author formulates the conclusions, necessary for the further consideration of the problem, and the proposals, that can serve as a basis for the decrease of terrorist challenges and threats and can be used in the practical activities of law enforcement agencies.
