    The structure, stability and dynamics of vortices in the hybrid atomic-molecular Bose-Einstein condensates was discussed using Raman-induced photoassociation process. In the coherently coupled two-component condensates, new types of topological vortex states were predicted to exit, even without a trapping potential. The effect of strong and weak losses of a different physical origin on the dynamics of the vortex solitons were studied.
