The legality of this should now be checked at the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Nizhny Novgorod Region. As it became known to us, a special examination was appointed in this regard.
NKVD reported on the problem of mass production and sale of "NKVD Finns" on January 22 this year in the publication "17 thousand for a fake: want to buy a "real NKVD sheath knife"? Not a problem!". It was about the mass production and sale of blades by one of the private enterprises of the Nizhny Novgorod region. The manufacturer refused to answer our question about whether he has a special certification for the production of "finnish NKVD". We made official inquiries to law enforcement agencies asking for an assessment of the free sale of knives, which in appearance do not in any way resemble kitchen utensils or a tourist attribute of a hunter or fisherman, but visually very similar to a murder weapon.
As you know, according to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, edged weapons are a specific thing designed to injure a selected target using the strength of a person's musculature. Edged weapons, which are capable of causing injury, are distinguished by the diameter and volume of the handle, by the size of the blade blade, by the width of the butt. In addition to various types of knives, sabers, daggers, brass knuckles, stilettos are referred to melee weapons. The law prohibits blades and knives that have a blade of more than 9 cm. It prohibits knives, the point of which can be removed by pressing on the handle or lever. Nothing is said about the parameters of the fincas that the stores sell. Their manufacturer and seller declined to comment on this. But the head of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Nizhny Novgorod Region, General Alexey Porva, agreed with our arguments. Indeed, according to part 2 of article 7 of the Federal Law No. 150 of 13.12.1996, all models of civilian and service weapons produced on the territory of the Russian Federation, imported into the Russian Federation and exported from our country, as well as products structurally similar to weapons, are subject to mandatory confirmation of conformity.
“Part 3 of the Federal Law of December 17, 2002, No. 184-FZ" On Technical Regulation "states that mandatory confirmation of conformity is carried out in the forms of acceptance of a declaration of conformity or mandatory certification. The information on the manufacturer's website cannot be equated with a declaration or certification of conformity”, - says the letter that NI received from the Rosgvardia Directorate for the Nizhny Novgorod Region.
The letter also stated that our editorial request was forwarded to the head of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Nizhny Novgorod Region, Major General of Police Y.V. Arsentiev, “to conduct a check” in order to establish the presence of signs of crimes under Articles 171, 22, 223 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation".
More than a month has passed: a request from the Russian Guard was sent to the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Nizhny Novgorod Region on February 20. Whatever one may say, 30 days, which according to the Law give organizations to answer, have passed. To our question why the answer from this department was so delayed, the deputy head of the press service, lieutenant colonel of the internal service Svetlana Kovylin replied that she needed to check where our request is now, and this takes time. “I haven’t heard anything about him”, - a spokesperson admitted.
Actually, all this is strange. After all, the request from Novye Izvestia was forwarded to the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Nizhny Novgorod Region not by someone, but by the head of the Rosgvardia Directorate. The press service of the regional Ministry of Internal Affairs told us that the letter could get lost somewhere in the office. Lieutenant Colonel Svetlana Kovylina still assured Novye Izvestia that the experts of the Nizhny Novgorod region will carry out all the necessary work to ensure that the "NKVD finns" meet the requirements of the Criminal Code and certification, and they will even send us photographs of these experts. The National Guard also does not lose hope of getting an answer from colleagues.
