The police seized the melee weapon and sent it to the Research Forensic Centre at the Office of the MIA for examination.
A criminal proceeding has been opened over this fact. This violation is punishable by the fine of up to 850 hryvnia, restriction of liberty for a term of 2 to 5 years, or imprisonment for up to three years.
