From the very beginning of the existence of state formations the security of each subject has been extremely important. If we express this need through the prism of modernity and actualization of the concepts known today, the result will be outlining the essence of the problem, as the protection of sovereignty by depriving other actors of the opportunity to interfere in domestic politics. In this way, according to the epoch, it is possible to clearly outline specific phenomena that will be regarded as a direct or indirect threat to safety in the surrounding. As a result, there is an idea of what actually needs to be feared and counteracted to prevent undesirable consequences.
