The following is a translation into English of the weapons laws of the Russian Federation. The translation is not an official translation by the Russian government. Accordingly, if you intend to use or possess firearms in Russia, you should consult with a Russian Embassy or Consulate in order to ascertain the lawfulness of what you plan to do.
In general, this Issue Paper directly and closely translates the Russian statutes into English, rather than re-phrasing the statutes as if they had been originally written in English.
