The study focuses on the topic that has not been a subject of special research. It is the impact of evacuation processes on economic crime during the initial period of the Great Patriotic War. The article determines the reasons for the increase in crime within the evacuation space, considers the types of economic crimes, and analyses the difficulties in discovering and repressing them. It is concluded that penalties for economic crimes committed under the emergency conditions of evacuation were made tougher but that method of reducing crime was not very effective.
