A Russian citizen was detained in the Moscow region, who returned from the war in Ukraine and brought home a Kalashnikov assault rifle, 420 rounds of ammunition for it, and 14 RGD-5 grenades with fuses. This is reported by the Telegram channel "112", publishing a photo.
According to the channel, the detainee kept the entire illegal arsenal in the garage at the place of residence. All ammunition was confiscated from the man.
This is not the first time that a Russian who fought in Ukraine takes ammunition or weapons with him when he returns home. In April, Vladivostok police put on the wanted list a participant in the war in Ukraine, 60-year-old Nikolai Pivovarov, on suspicion of murder. Local media sources reported that Pivovarov had “considerable combat experience”, “liquidated a special group in the NVO zone”, and could have brought weapons with him. At the same time, before being sent to war, the man was tried under the articles “illegal acquisition, transfer, sale, storage, transportation or carrying of weapons” and “theft”.
The Insider previously drew attention to the fact that former prisoners who returned from the war, who are taken to the Wagner PMC, after the release promised by the authorities and arrival in their hometowns, terrorize the local population. They also become addicted to alcohol or die from overdoses of psychoactive substances, and some prisoners return to crime again: several cases of murders are already known in Russia.
