legal support of counter-terrorism units of the state border protection in the leading
countries of the world and Ukraine. Based on this, proposals for the imp rovement of anti-
terrorism bodies of the State Bo rder Guard Service of Ukraine have been formulated.
Ukraine should use the foreign experience in this sphere, namely: create anti-terrorism
legislation, which is accurate, clear, addressing real threa ts; to recognize all terrorist acts
as criminal; d efine the system of bodies engaged in combating terrorism, including border
guard authorities, giving them sufficient competence; assign the bodies of the State Border
Guard Service of Ukraine anti-terrorism functions; interact with the border guard agencies
of different countries in the context of counter-terrorism activities and exchange of
information; apply the latest technical and software developments with investigation and
identification of terrorists and means of terror; strengthen anti-terrorist activities d uring
border control.
Keywords: terrorism, coun tering terrorism, State Border Guard Service of

localization, and minimization of consequences of terrorist activities. This
experience should be studied, analyzed and implemented taking into account
national specifics of the anti-terrorist activity of the state border protection bodies
of Ukraine. It is worth noting that the closer is the state policy of Ukraine towards
