Jupiter Trojans and Neptune Trojans have been selected from the Minor Planet center catalog for 2020. Numerical calculations of the evolution of orbits on intervals of up to 1 million years have been carried out. It has been established that all discovered by today Neptune Trojans and the numbered Jupiter Trojans are unlikely to transfer into the Centaur population during the next hundreds of thousands of years.

Key words
Trojans, Centaurs, orbits.
