Today, June 1, a poll on the attitude of Ukrainian citizens to the free possession of weapons ended in the "Diia" application. 1,726,452 people took part in the survey.

The poll results were announced by the Minister of Digital Transformation, Mikhail Fedorov.

The poll showed that:

59% - believe that all citizens who meet the requirements of the law can have a gun and are free to carry it in public places;
22% - say that pistols should not be in circulation among the civilian population;
19% said that all citizens who comply with the law can have pistols and use them only in shooting ranges or shooting ranges. In this case, it is forbidden to carry a weapon.

Thank you for your activity. Such involvement is an indication that we are moving in the right direction. Not every state today can communicate with its citizens in three clicks. This is an unprecedented case of direct e-democracy

Mikhail Fedorov
