Abstract: The reflections presented below (in Part I) do not stem from the intention of the author to speculate about the prospects of Communism or discuss the alternative scenarios for the future of the Soviet bloc. They are limited to a few conclusions which can be drawn from the logical progression of recent events. The reflections in Part II address some current legal aspects of fighting international terrorism. (Author abstract)
