During the last decade of the XX-th century the threat of a world war outburst, using weapons of mass destruction (WMD) was replaced by terrorist actions. The efforts of the society and leading state and scientific achievements were directed to prevent and mitigate the consequences, resulting from natural and anthropogenic disasters.
