In order to successfully resist extremism and terrorism in society, it is necessary to know and understand the criminal nature of these phenomena.
   In modern science, the concept of "extremism" does not exist in a unanimous sense, there is no unity in international legal practice. "Extreme" and can be interpreted as a commitment to 
extreme views and measures. Extremism (from the Latin word extremum - extremism) is the theory and practice of achieving socio-political, religious, national goals through "extremist" and
 prohibited methods. These methods include the use of illegal force of law, violence, interference with the rights and freedoms of people and citizens. In some countries, such actions are called
 crimes based on hatred and hatred, but in this case, hatred and hatred is not only against a person as a person, but also as a representative of a certain national, religious, social group, as a 
carrier of certain policies and ideological views and beliefs. .
   An extremist is not only a murderer or a tyrant, he is an "ideological" criminal who believes in his innocence.
   At first glance, it seems that the problem of extremism is the most important, because the number of registered crimes of an extremist nature is small compared to other crimes. But these 
crimes have a systematic nature, because they hinder peace and harmony between different national, religious and social groups of our society, political and legal stability. This is the main 
danger of extremism for our society.
   Extremism extends to social thinking, social psychology, ethics, ideology and relations between social groups (social extremism), ethnic groups (ethnic or national extremism), public
 associations, political parties, states (political extremism), religions (religious). . Extremism is different and its motivations are also different. The main reasons are: material, ideological, the 
desire for change and dissatisfaction with the real situation, power over people, interest in a certain type of activity, sympathy, self-knowledge, youth novels, heroism, play, attractiveness of
 the risk of death.
   The motivations of lawbreakers differ significantly from those of law-abiding citizens. Motivation for criminal behavior in extremist organizations is divided into personal and group. Being in a 
group contributes to the emergence of certain motivations for behavior, setting new goals and avoiding advanced predictions. When forming the motives and goals of extremist activity in the 
group, as a rule, there is an exchange of opinions, knowledge, experience, as well as mutual trust and suggestions, which accelerates the prosecution of the crime.
