The increase in the number of premium weapons that recently issued by the Ministry of interior, is reasonable and is due to the fact that Ukraine is at war. This was stated by the speaker of the Ministry of internal Affairs Andriy Shevchenko in the broadcast channel “112 Ukraine”.
“The increase in the number of awarded weapons in recent years are absolutely correlated and corresponds to the number of people who have committed heroic deeds at the front. It is quite natural that when a country is at war and a large number of people to protect Ukraine as part of the interior Ministry, the police, the national guard under and Mat, the amount awarded increases. Nothing surprising in this. Any orders, regulations, which clearly identified who and what can be awarded. It is a mistake to think that handing out weapons left and right,” – said Shevchenko .
