Introduction: countering crimes of extremism is one of the most urgent tasks of our time. To solve this problem, a variety of tools and methods are actively used, including the capabilities currently developed by criminalistics. One of the promising directions in the development of improving measures to counter extremism is the formation of a morally oriented personality. In this regard, the purpose of the study was to consider the possibilities of educational influence on witnesses during interrogation in criminal cases of extremism. Methods: the methodological framework for this research was based on the methods of systematicity, analysis, historicism and comparative law. Results: the author’s well-grounded position was based on the consideration of the possibility of using educational influence on various categories of witnesses in the investigations of crimes of extremism. In the study of the possibilities of using educational effects, the relationship between the influences of the investigator on the witness was studied. On the basis of the conducted research, the differentiation of characteristic categories of witnesses subject to interrogation in this category of criminal cases under investigation was made.
