Abstract
The article deals with the anti/terrorist legislation of Russia. In the first part the authors give some introduction to the subject, reminding of a several well/known terrorist acts which took place in Moscow and other Russian cities. They underline that under present-day conditions the jeopardy of terrorism increased in comparison with the 1940-1960s years of the 20th century not only owing to its considerable prevalence but also because humanity obtained access to mass-destruction weapons: nuclear, chemical, biological, laser etc., that possesses enormous destructive force. The authors then go to the positive Russian legislation in this field and present the most important provisions of the relevant laws, many of which are rather new. The final conclusion of the authors is that Russian Federation now has a well established and actively functioning national system of countering terrorism, which represents the aggregate of subjects of counter-terrorism and enactments, regulating the activities of the said subjects to expose, avert (prevent), suppress, detect and investigate terrorist activity, to minimize and (or) liquidate the consequences of terrorism.
