Medved, Valentyn. 2011 ‘Ukraine Ranks 84th by Number of Gun Owners, Says Small Arms Survey.’ Ukrainian Journal / Komsomolskaya Pravda. Kiev: 7 November
Ukrainians "own about 800,000 rifles and smooth-barrel guns, 169,000 rubber bullet weapons and 107,000 pneumatic weapons of 5.5 millimeters and more," the Interior Ministry's arms license department head, Valentyn Medved, told the newspaper [Komsomolskaya Pravda].
"The number of arms owners reduced by 17,000-19,000 over the past few years. Few people can afford to buy a gun, it costs too much."
