Toward approaches to big data analysis for terroristic behavior identification :Сhild soldiers in illegal armed groups during the conflict in Donbas region


Paper aimed to consider of approaches to big data (social network content) utilization for understanding of social behavior in the conflict zones, and analysis of dynamics of illegal armed groups. Analysis directed to identify of underage militants. The probabilistic and stochastic methods of analysis and classification of number, composition and dynamics of illegal armed groups in active conflict areas are proposed.

The numerical distribution of age, gender composition, origin, social status and nationality of child militants among illegal armed groups has been calculated.
