Canada lifts restrictions on arms sale to Ukraine

Ukrinform
Canada has added Ukraine to the list of countries on the Automatic Firearms Country Control List (AFCCL).

The corresponding decision has been published in the Canada Gazette, the official newspaper of the Government of Canada.

"Once approved, this regulatory amendment of the AFCCL will add Ukraine to the list of countries that the Governor in Council deems appropriate to export certain prohibited firearms, prohibited weapons and prohibited devices, and their components or parts," the report reads.

The corresponding decision comes into force on the day it is published.

The AFCCL is an additional export control measure that is unique to Canada. Export of “automatic firearms” is prohibited from Canada unless the country of end-use is listed on the AFCCL. For the purposes of the AFCCL automatic firearms are certain prohibited firearms, prohibited weapons and prohibited devices, and components or parts of such items as defined in the Criminal Code. Examples of these items include fully automatic firearms, electric stun guns and large-capacity magazines.
