I think that Ukraine needs not only liberalization, but also the legalization of the circulation of weapons. Ordering. Formation of a culture of safe and responsible attitude to weapons, Reznikov noted.
Also, in his opinion, it is necessary “not to create bans, but to regulate the use of weapons due to the formation of a shooting culture.” To do this, according to the minister, it is necessary to develop the appropriate infrastructure – a network of shooting ranges, shooting ranges, shooting clubs, as well as organize competitions.
