Police in the Chernihiv region found a cache with a rare Russian PP-91 Kedr machine pistol and other weapons.

The police of the Chernihiv region said that the cache belonged to a 40-year-old native of Crimea.

The man was previously wanted on suspicion of drug trafficking.

During a search of the man’s home, police found three caches that were buried in the ground in metal barrels.

In particular, law enforcement officers discovered and seized a warehouse of weapons, namely:

  • AKM and three magazines to it;
  • recycled AKS-47 with silencer;
  • 20 F-1 grenades;
  • PP-91 Kedr machine pistol;
  • more than 200 rounds.

They also seized a narcotic substance (hemp), which was dried and packaged in 21 plastic bags weighing 600-700 grams each.

In total, the police sent more than 14 kilograms of drugs for examination.

Kedr

For Ukraine, the Russian PP-91 Kedr machine pistol is quite a rare weapon, even despite the large-scale war with Russia.

The Russian PP-91 Kedr machine pistol was created in the early 1990s by order of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs and was based on Soviet developments.

Пістолет-кулемет ПП-71

The design was taken from a PP-71 machine pistol that was created by gunsmith Y. Dragunov. His initials are encrypted in the name of the weapon – “Design of Yevgeny Dragunov.”

The submachine gun uses a standard cartridge caliber of 9×18mm PM. The capacity of the box magazine is twenty or thirty rounds. Among the obvious advantages of the PP-91 are its compactness, light weight, and thoughtful shape.

Recall that in July, a rare Alien pistol was spotted in the service of soldiers escorting President Zelensky and the Head of the DIU, Budanov.
