Legal firearms are often used to solve conflicts, not to defend health and property, acting chief of Interior Ministry's Public relations Office Serhiy Burlakov  told ForUm, commenting on the initiative of public shooting organizations to adopt the law "On weapons"

"Last year 357 crimes involving firearms were registered in Ukraine, and 48 out of them were committed with legal firearms, officially registered. 34 people died," he said.

Burlakov underlined that in the majority of cases legal firearms are used to settle scores in conflict situations, while defense of property of health is rare cases in our country. At the same time the Interior Ministry has refused to comment on the legal aspect of the initiative, saying they have not seen the document yet.
