The national counter-extremism and counter-terrorism strategies for 2021-2025 emphasize, with reference to international experience, that success in combating extremism and terrorism requires taking into account the ideological, socio-economic, legal and structural factors that contribute to extremists' activities. be removed.

Although the fight against terrorism and extremism is the main task of law enforcement bodies and security agencies, at the same time it requires comprehensive support of citizens.

Thus, to combat radicalism, extremism and terrorism, all strata of society, including scientists and specialists, educators, journalists and intellectuals, must be responsible, cooperate with the authorities and protect people from the influence of this contagion of the age.
