Here we present our new developed method for prediction/prevention of the large natural and man-induced catastrophes and eliminate their consequences with increasing of safety in natural and industrial aspects. Some most dangerous regions at the territories of above mentioned countries are under consideration and they are characterized: the mountain lands with the high seismic level; the largest rivers with the powerful hydroelectric stations, sizeable reservoirs and huge high dams; the man-induced high industrial activity, that increases probabilities for occurrence man-induced and natural catastrophes with irreversible huge radioactive, toxic and other hazard pollutions of large territories, Black, Caspian and Kara Seas and their water river's basins; high opportunity to perform deliberate attacks of terrorists with the using of explosives, that are able to cause man-induced catastrophes and stimulate natural calamities. The implementation of our approach will be promote the realization of concept of substantial development and decreasing of political stress for all countries, located at the continent.
