Landslide hazard has always been a focus of research of scientific and industrial organizations in Russia, as well as the former Soviet Union . This research included a broad spectrum of studies of landslide processes based on monitoring data collected at specialized stations nationwide, as well as the data collected and analyzed by various government and academic research institutions. The current study summarizes a vast body of knowledge encompassing an inventory of landslide cases, overview of mechanisms of landslide development and monitoring and slope stability assessments. It presents a new mechanism-based landslide classification and proposes a practical method of increasing slope resistance. Partial findings have been previously presented in numerous publications. We believe these findings have a worldwide significance and can be applied in different regions of our planet.
