Medvedev tightens rules for storing weapons
The changes will take effect in February 2019.
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree to tighten the rules for the storage of weapons. Now it is necessary to keep in the safe not only guns and cartridges but also gunpowder, primers. Storage conditions for weapons should exclude access to it by unauthorized persons, including children.
The changes will come into force together with the July edition of the federal law On Arms, that is, in February 2019. Then the owners of weapons were allowed to equip ammunition independently but after appropriate training. Persons without a proper license could not buy substances for furnishing cartridges.
Six months ago, no one could predict the state of the MIA General Administration for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region by the time of the forthcoming elections. After the appointment of Moscow general Roman Plugin in charge of it, the St. Petersburg police has undergone significant changes. Major general of justice Oleg Antropov, Head of the Main Investigations Directorate, is ‘the last man standing’ from the old command of the MIA General Administration. Most probably, he is going to become the next victim of ‘janitor’ Plugin.
