“The Kalashnikov is the weapon that you need to soldier in the army. He intended to destroy the offender. A new type of weapon has a preventive character. A policeman who uses weapons as a last resort, have to stop the offender, give him the right to life, and then to bring him to criminal responsibility,” — said Knyazev.
According to him, sub-machine guns MP5 used in the police in the USA and the EU, and the upgrading of the Ukrainian police would be a step towards European standards. The exact timing of the replacement arms the Minister did not name, but noted that this will happen in the near future.
The Director of the Department of communication of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Ukraine Artem Shevchenko in an interview with the publication “Ukrainian Pravda” explained that the new submachine guns are also martial, but less lethal. In particular, they have less risk of falling into the goal from a ricochet, not a direct shot.
