Record Keeping

Legislation in Ukraine provides for the introduction of record-keeping covering all small arms and light weapons, in the form of a count of the weapons and a check by registration number, in storage facilities and units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Ministry of Internal Affairs bodies and units of the domestic forces.

Documentation is maintained on all distributions of weapons and ammunition, and their movements in stores.

By Presidential Order of Ukraine No. 609 of 3 June 2004 a departmental data base was established for electronic record-keeping of small arms, based on tracking numbers, which operates within the unified system of the State data base with computerized record-keeping of firearms, based on tracking numbers.

Measures are being taken at the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine to improve the security system for small arms and light weapons.
