"Once we went on a trip with my friend and our families. Rented a rickety old hut in the village, the electricity worked poorly, but there was a lot of firewood. We heated the stove, collected mushrooms, wandered through the swamps, caught crayfish with children in the icy water. There were a lot of impressions, but, unfortunately, the weather had deteriorated. I decided not to stop the trip, to go to the sea. It was difficult to keep the idea a secret and put the children to bed after intense adventures, I had to tell them.

Then, many years later, the children said the words most dear to my wife and me: "Parents, how happy we are that you are so crazy"," - Dmitry Danilov, Head of European Security Department at Institute of Europe, Russian Academy of Sciences.

International terrorism remains one of the key threats to Russia's security. However, as the world continues to digitalize, cyberterrorism is spreading along with traditional forms, which can cause much greater damage to the global security architecture, which is largely facilitated by the rapid development of information and communication technologies. The purpose of this research note is to analyze the activities of Al–Qaeda* and ISIS*, as the two most active supporters of the concept of digital jihad, in cyberspace.
