In this paper we present results of a research on automatic extremist text detection. For this purporse an experimental dataset in the Russian language was created. According to the Russian legislation we cannot make it publicly available. We compared various classification methods (multinomial naive Bayes, logistic regression, linear SVM, random forest, and gradient boosting) and evaluated the contribution of differentiating features (lexical, semantic and psycholinguistic) to classification quality. The results of experiments show that psycholinguistic and semantic features are promising for extremist text detection.
