Elements of the Ukrainian SALW Control System: Civilian possession
There is currently no legislation regarding the private ownership of weaponry, although a law regulating this issue is being debated in the Parliament.
Previous attempts to introduce gun-ownership legislation failed as no agreement was found over what kinds of weapons private citizens could legally possess and whether or not private ownership would increase crime or improve security.
Many officials simply object to the legal sale and possession of arms among the general population.
