It is in the context of the relationship "ethics and law" that the problems of using autonomous combat vehicles can become quite acute, which in the absence of taking into account all the negative consequences of the use of autonomous robots in the framework of warfare can lead at least to the destruction of generally accepted moral and ethical principles and, as a maximum, to the destruction of humanity itself.
