This paper is devoted to the method of strong earthquakes prediction based on the analysis of seismic catalogues with involvement of the Coulomb-Mohr's criteria and basic laws of linear theory of elasticity. This method is well-known as LURR (load-unload response ratio). Inherently, it allows to identify attainment of the deformation process of the phase when medium response to loading can be no longer linear (predestruction). The technique has been successfully applied in Sakhalin and in the
