The article studies some aspects of resistance to legalisation of \"dirty\" money and substantiates proposals on increase of efficiency of this resistance. Standard features of the countries, which are often selected by criminals for money laundering, are characterised. A list of some internal and external factors is provided and used for analysis, on the basis of which it is assumed that this new (for Ukrainian society) anti-social phenomenon - legalisation of "dirty" money - already exists or would appear soon in Ukraine. Reasons of this phenomenon are disclosed on the basis of research of opinions of representatives of domestic criminological science, which form a concept of realising the danger of legalisation of proceeds from criminal activity, and it is determined that resistance to this phenomenon requires complex, scientifically justified and modern preventive measures to be undertaken. Main directions of the state policy in fighting organised crime are determined, basic legal measures for resistance to it are formulated and it is proved that their efficiency could be achieved only in the event of internal harmonicity and system co-ordination with the measures of social development of the society.
