Abstract. Currently, sabotage and reconnaissance groups of unfriendly countries are planning and committing acts of illegal interference against critical infrastructure facilities and transport infrastructure facilities of the Russian Federation. It is necessary to recognize that currently the information reflected in restricted documents, which contain information about the anti-terrorism protection of critical infrastructure facilities, is publicly available. There have been many successful counterintelligence and counter-intelligence efforts undertaken by national security agencies to combat the aforementioned threats. At the same time, when analyzing regulatory legal acts regulating activities in the field of enforcing transport security, there can be seen problems that currently need to be quickly resolved. The current paper has discussed individual regulatory legal acts, which, according to the authors, should be amended and (or) supplemented. There has been also considered the use of unmanned aerial vehicles for the purpose of committing acts of illegal interference, including terrorist acts, as the most pressing modern threats to transport infrastructure facilities. The current study also contains several proposals aimed at increasing the efficiency of legal regulation of transport infrastructure facilities and specific measures to optimize the competence of responsible entities in this area.
