The ban on Kalashnikov sales in the U.S. provoked a flurry on the American weapon market. As Americans started buying up the concern’s products, the U.S. Department of the Treasury announced Americans who had Kalashnikov’s weapons could retain and even resell them if the weapons had been entirely paid for. The ban affected only new supply contracts.Kalashnikov expressed sympathy for American consumers.
“This situation is yet another sign that our weapon is very popular with Americans, and the sanctions imposed contravene their interests,” said the concern’s press secretary Yekaterina Boni.
The concern used to supply to the U.S. hunting and sports weapons, including the popular Saiga rifle - the civil equivalent of AK-47 rifle. Kalashnikov also supplied Saiga-12 shotguns for the U.S police.
On July 16, the U.S. Department of the Treasury introduced an additional sanctions list with several new Russian and Ukrainian individuals and companies and organizations, in particular four Rostec holdings, among them Kalashnikov.
