No violation of law has been in the actions of the law enforcement agents who recently detained armed men at the Kryvy Torets railway station in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said.

“According to the information that I have received from the law enforcement agencies, no violations of law committed by law enforcers during the detention of people and seizing the arms they had on them despite the regulation (it is prohibited to carry hunting weapons on the streets, especially in the combat zone, where all kinds of weapons, except for the ones carried by servicemen, are prohibited) have been detected so far,” Lutsenko told a briefing conference in Kyiv on March 15.
