The article uncovers the essence of the conspiration as a term borrowed from the European languages. It also reveals semantic and semiotic transformations that mislead the unity of understanding of the meaning of conspiration by the foreign and Ukrainian jurists. The article determines the differences between the nature of the secret performance of the opposite forces – representatives of the criminal, subversive organizations and the state agencies that are fighting against the organized crime. The research suggests approaches to the usage of the term of “conspiration” in legislation, taking into consideration the integration of Ukraine into the Euro-Atlantic community.
