Donetsk & Lugansk People’s Republic Now Making Guns

    The self-proclaimed rebel Federal State of Novorossiya, the unrecognized confederation of Donetsk People’s Republic and Lugansk People’s Republic located inside Ukraine, are now manufacturing their own DIY submachine guns. The Novorussian SMG appears to fire a 9mm round, either 9x18mm Makarov or 9x19mm NATO, from a simple blowback action and a threaded barrel (with optional suppressor).

    The rebels seem to have no shortage of weapons, both heavy and light. The real purpose of this announcement is probably to send the message: “you can try cutting us off, but we will just make our own guns”.
