Abstract


The competition for international influence in the global world caused the aggravation of international conflicts on a religious-ethnic, economic and socio-cultural basis. Any internal political problems of the state may become the cause for sanctions and restrictions applied by competitors in order to gain advantages in trade and promotion of their interests. Corruption and extremism adversely affect the global competitiveness of the state, causing many structural problems of modern Russia. Within the certain level of corruption that affects public authorities, government structures are unable to control violent extremism effectively. The interdependence of the level of perception of corruption and the degree of political struggle radicalization in the country reflects the ability of the law enforcement institutions to combat corruption and counteract extremist crimes. The results of the research demonstrate that world practice of countering violent extremism is enforced against extremist communities which are simultaneously in an ideological conflict with the state and civil society institutions. The resolution of conflicts between civil society institutions and groups within a political class requires legal harmonization of national legislation, bringing law into line with the provisions of international law and the formation of a legitimate authority of the judiciary. Any manifestations of violent extremism and corruption are illegal, contrary to the principle of justice and cannot be justified by rationality and expediency motives. The general consolidation and eradication of corruption at the national level, along with the restoration of social justice, are the necessary conditions for reducing the number of manifestations of extremism that undermine Russia's national security and competitiveness in the global world.
