Ukraine has become Europe’s largest “black market” of weapons


Such a hard-hitting title the republic "won" in 2014 g, and continues to hold it.

Ukraine has finally turned into the black market of illegal weapons number one in Europe ... In a country that is fighting, there is no weapons
, - said the head of the "Ukrainian Association of Weapons Owners" Georgiy Uchaikin.

According to him, the "standard Kalashnikov assault rifle AK-74 sell for 7-8 thousand hryvnia, its modernized version AKS74U with folding stock - of 15 thousand hryvnia, the cost of handguns PM and TT - from 5 to 10 thousand hryvnia, grenades - from 400 to 600 hryvnia. " Moreover, the farther from the ATO zone, the price becomes higher. The police knows all this, but cannot turn the tide.

Uchaykin blames the prosperity of the underground business, including the "public servants". “People see that deputies ... get premium weapons. And ordinary citizens are deprived of such an opportunity - and they are trying to get into the illegal market, creating demand there. And behind demand, supply is tightened, ”he believes.



The flow of weapons from the Donbass is continuous. Militiamen detain with illegal weapons "both the military, going on leave or on rotation, and civilians, including volunteers," said Uchaykin. Moreover, the latter may not know what is in the packages they transport from the front line.

As the newspaper notes, Kiev increasingly began to occupy the top lines in the ratings of the most dangerous cities in Europe. Kharkiv and Lviv are not far behind him.

      For law enforcement agencies of Ukraine, the main thing as a result of an investigation into the causes of arms sales is not to go out on themselves.

      Ukraine before that was a semi-legal factor for the sale of weapons - now it’s just that legality has become many times less, and so, this yellow-blocking cesspool constantly dumped cheap deadly iron inherited from the legendary Soviet Army on the arms markets!

          Somehow, at the request of a friend, I went to Ternopol with him in 2008. And while rummaging around his affairs in the city, to my uninteresting question - where are at least more or less beautiful girls? - an exhaustive answer was received - on earnings in Europe laughing In reality, the logic works, the approximate correlation of different ages is known, and the trained eye caught a good such dissonance in relation to girls. More precisely, their apparent underestimated amount fellow Paradox but it is a fact request

      We’ll deliver weapons to his brothers, but Avakov is already selling them, and of course, those who don’t receive money for participating in terror, as well as professional bandits for whom the war is mother

    Who would doubt that. If there is a mess in the country and war, then there can be no other. The author of the price slightly overestimated. I do not know how it is now, but a year ago, PM was offered for 2000 gr.

      No, the sea is not their element. They will raid neighboring farms, expropriate the vodka and fight pigs for fat.

    And to use the "legacy of the period of Soviet occupation" is not flush? Or have they already renamed the weapons - the Kalashnikov assault rifle is now probably called "kulaplyuy Kalashnichenko"? fool

      Yes, what are you! They have a factory - Lenin's forge !! - it makes boats, the monuments to Lenin were demolished, but the plant plows in full ...... this is a very complicated variable, it’s overwhelmed! You can understand the logic only if you put a pan on your head and in a jump, hit your head hard on the ceiling - this brings the very understanding where a true, broad Ukrainian finds meaning!

    Everything that happens in Ukraine is tracing paper from Russia 25 ago. It seems that Belarus will have to go through this, if Old Man will behave the same. But there will be a lag 30 - 35 years.

    Well, what’s wrong with that: since they don’t want a legal relatively free arms market, you’ll get not legal. It pleases me in the sense that the illegal market — if it makes a weapon a habitual thing — it will organize it automatically — people will get used to having weapons, “play enough”, shoot out especially zealous and absurd ones and everything will be fine.

    Everything is clear with Ukraine, but how Europe is still turning a blind eye to this - this is not only symbolic, but also logical. In the future you should not flirt with Europe, but you should take it only from the position of our interests.

    Even 5-7 thousand for me is the sum. Not to mention the fact that I have never seen where and how to buy. Well, at least take a look. And then "market, market ..." No, SBUshniki of course can "sell "... A really simple person to buy an illegal barrel ... nonsense.

    According to him, “the standard Kalashnikov AK-74 assault rifle is sold for 7-8 thousand hryvnias, its modernized version of the AKS74U with a folding butt - for 15 thousand hryvnias

    AKS74U is not an upgraded version of the AK-74. AKS74U is a shortened version of the AK-74 with a folding butt. The upgraded version of the AK-74 is the AK-74M.

    The "invisible hand" of the arms market itself will make a natural selection? Around the same time, the "invisible hand" of the automobile market for drivers who do not drive according to the rules removes the next "kings of the road" with the help of fatal accidents with casualties among casual pedestrians. Spontaneously and ruthlessly.

    Maybe this is right, with such a rampant crime, a normal person, especially in rural and other territory far from the center, should be able to protect himself and his family, by the way there is nothing new in the history of our country, it’s enough to recall the period after the civil war as an example.

    Firstly, it is cheaper to award weapons with an organization engaged in its sale from Ukraine showed a price list for the export of TT. 10 bucks worth the most expensive Walter R-38 65 bucks and this weapon there echelons. There is only business. And the main question is what if Ukraine as a state is the most unbiased arms dealer selling it anywhere and anyone is suspected of all major deliveries to terrorists and their states. They sold everything that is possible and impossible. With the collapse of the USSR, 22 thousand tanks remained there, and how many more at the repair plants are unknown and now they have nothing to fight where everything happened))). It was sold at scrap prices only immediately and in my pocket. This is all a trifle, of course it’s unpleasant to have such a thing near you. But the comic nature of the situation is such that mock-ups of these weapons are more expensive than selling military and Ukrainian assault rifles and pistols are cutting and making MMG a large-sized mock-up. And the thing they rushed even arranged to make copies of the MP-40 and at one time they sold as originals and earned 300-400 thousand rubles apiece until they were bitten. Here's a story))).
