KIEV, February 24. /TASS/. Ukrainian police has announced that March 2016 will be the month of voluntarily surrendering unregistered weapons.
"Citizens who will in the established timeframe come to police to surrender weapons, ammunition, explosives or special devices kept illegally, will be exempt from criminal liability," the police said in a statement on Wednesday.
Illegal arms have become a serious problem for Ukraine over the last two years. According to Kiev’s police, illegal weapons are confiscated almost daily while it is hard to estimate how many unregistered guns are currently in circulation. Weapons are sold at markets, in social networks and even delivered by express services.
Against this backdrop, grenade explosions and armed attacks are reported on a daily basis. Law enforcers say that the number of gun-related crimes has grown by two times over the last year.
