This was announced by Censor.NET Chief Editor Yurii Butusov on his Facebook page.
"The U.S. Department of State allowed Ukrainian company "Taktychni Systemy" to import military sniper patrons of 12.7-mm caliber in quantity of 5,000 items, 8.6-mm - 40,000 items, 7.62-mm - 40,000 items, and even yet exotic Chey Tac of 9.3-mm caliber (never thought there was demand for those here, I only saw Chey in the Sniper movie)," he noted.
Butusov calls this an important precedent, for the U.S. used to sell only regular patrons to Ukraine earlier. There has been a ban on sniper and anti-armor patrons. He said Ukraine hoped to import the latter as well.
"The patrons have arrived in Ukraine. The price is high. Part of them will be directed to state authorities. Most of them will be bought by hunters. Hunters are very active here, buying rifles and patrons even at high prices," Butusov commented.
