CRIMINOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PERSONALITY OF A MILITARY CRIMINAL
The issues of theoretical and legal justification for the concept of the military criminal personality in the context of the current state of the military within the system of social-legal relations are very urgent. The analysis of the existing approaches showed that the personality of such criminals develops based on the essential socio-psychological, socio-economic, and moral factors. Based on the study, the author proves the idea that an offender from among the compulsory-duty servicemen is a not fully developed personality with an unstable psyche, well-developed physically, dominating in the informal army structure (or aspiring to that), and having experience of aggressive behavior and violence. A command staff criminal is a fully developed personality; it is often a choleric temperament subject, who has the experience of aggressive behavior and violence, indifferent to the fate of the subordinates and the army in general, putting his interests above all things. The study determined that criminals have a close relationship with civilian life and many life spheres of society. The solution to this problem is in the complex analysis and the predictive modeling of the socio-economic, spiritual, moral, and psychological problems of the society and the army. It is the most important to overcome such problems as corruption and a low professional level of military personnel. Therefore, among the issues awaiting the decision, it is necessary to highlight the training of the professional military personnel considering the global experience, including the experience of the friendly neighboring countries.
