Keywords: criminal liability, criminal offense, national security, sabotage, terrorist act.

Abstract

The purpose of the article is to study the main problematic aspects of the regulation of liability for sabotage in the legislation of Ukraine. The subject of the research is the problematic aspects of the regulation of criminal liability for sabotage under the laws of Ukraine. In order to obtain reliable results, a number of methods are applied: dialectical, formal-logical, hermeneutic, logical-semantic, statistical, comparative-legal, etc. The results of the conducted research: modern threats to the national security of any state require effective measures of counteraction, including the qualitative criminal legislation. The main shortcomings of the regulation of liability for sabotage under the laws of Ukraine are due to the imperfection of the components of this criminal offense, as well as the misinterpretation of its provisions by the enforcer. In addition, it is determined that one of the important problems of liability for such action is the parallel existence of a terrorist act in the criminal legislation of Ukraine, and the components of a terrorist act by its content and nature in most cases coincides with the components of sabotage. A number of changes and additions to the criminal legislation of Ukraine on elimination of the specified problems are proposed.
