The mercenary phenomenon took on a particularly large scale of manifestation in the contemporary stage. Currently, their presence on the battlefield is no longer a secret. They can appear at various stages of the evolution of the military conflict, military actions or other violent actions aimed at overthrowing or undermining the constitutional order or violating the territorial integrity of the state. The activity of mercenaries is dictated either by the need of the people participating in these actions to benefit from some remuneration in line with expectations, or by subjects who are in the shadows and pursue some goals and objectives to be achieved. Therefore, in the following order, we propose, as desired, to carry out an analysis of the presence of mercenaries in the European Territorial-Administrative Space, as well as to study their role on the European territory.
