POLITICAL ACTIVITY OF THE "MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD" IN EGYPT AFTER REMOVAL FROM THE PRESIDENCY M. MORSI 

 Political activity of the "Muslim Brotherhood" in Egypt after removal from the presidency M. Morsi Revolution in Egypt in 2011 and coming to the power of the "Muslim Brotherhood" became a real sensation for the entire Muslim world and generated a special interest of the political leaders of the West. However, military coup in the country in July 2013 cancelled previous "brothers" achievements in the political struggle for power and jeopardized the very existence of the organization. The article attempts to clarify the reasons of the political defeat of Egyptian President M. Morsi and to analyze internal contradictions among the "Muslim Brotherhood", due to which appeared the treat of the organization's split. Also equally important task is to determine the reaction of the Muslim world on the military coup in Egypt and the perspectives of further "Muslim Brotherhood's" activity under the circumstances of internal struggle for power and strengthening of persecution by the government of President A. Al-Sisi. Despite political failure in Egypt "Muslim Brotherhood" continued activity in the country, trying to organize united opposition of islamist and not islamist parties under their supervision. The authors have attempted to follow the main ways of creation of antigovernment organizations, where "brothers" play key role. Among them are "National Union to support the legitimacy", "Egyptian Revolutionary Council", "Administrative Office of Egyptians Abroad", "International Organization of the Muslim Brotherhood", located in Europe, and others.

 Keywords: the "Muslim Brotherhood", Islamism, regime of A. Al-Sisi, Muslim world, Arabian East, Islamic state.
