Recommendations are given as to successful effectuation of preventive programs, here refer, in particular, the following ones: continuation of state financing and development of social co-financing, creation of the system of grants for scientific collective organizations (SCO’s) and scientific teams, utilization of mechanisms of statal-private partnership by elaboration and allocation of resources for the programs on terrorism prevention.
