The COVID-19 pandemic, according to scientists and experts, was a major social upheaval that threatened to increase the spread of extremism among students. Analysis of open information sources shows that the growth of youth aggression in conditions of self-isolation and the increase in the amount of time spent on the Internet has contributed to the preservation of previous forms of extremist actions by children and adolescents, such as participation in destructive communities, causing harm to physical and mental health, preparing terrorist attacks in educational institutions. With the transition to distance learning, the mass disruption of classes was complemented, which can be considered in the context of preparation for extremist activity. All of this raises the question of the need for comprehensive research into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth extremism and the improvement of forms and methods of its prevention.
