Abstract:

Introduction. Terrorism, generated by large terrorist groups (primarily ISIS) and their adherents, continues to be one of the most significant threats of our time, including for the public and state security of the Russian Federation. At the same time, the nature and content of the terrorist threat are largely due to the change in the strategy of ISIS activities aimed at forming and ensuring the activities of its so-called "sleeper cells". 

Methods. The article analyzes the processes of formation of "sleeping cells" of the terrorist group "Islamic state"* on the territory of the Russian Federation and other CIS countries, as well as the threats emanating from these cells on the basis of systemic and institutional approaches. The main factors contributing to the escalation of the terrorist threat in the neighbouring Central Asian States of the Russian Federation are identified. The mechanisms of the use of the channels of labour migration with the aim of creating extremist "cells" in Russia. The measures for neutralization and suppression of functioning of terrorist "sleeping cells" in the territory of the Russian Federation and counteraction of recruitment in terrorist structures of the Russian citizens and the labor migrants who are in the territory of Russia are offered

Conclusion.  The development of the situation with the transformation of the activities of the group "IG" and its "sleeping cells" indicates the need for continuous improvement of anti-terrorist state policy. The purpose of the state and its law enforcement agencies in the framework of combating terrorism is to prevent the formation and suppression of such structures. The methods outlined in the article may prove effective in achieving this goal.
