The age for acquiring weapons will remain unchanged for the Far East. The State Duma did not raise the age for the purchase of civilian firearms to 21 years.

As the RIA News", in accordance with the bill, the opportunity to acquire this weapon under the age of 21 would be received by persons hunting to ensure the conduct of a traditional way of life, living in the Far North, Siberia and the Far East, as well as athletes undergoing shooting training and military personnel.

In 2018, the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security introduced a bill to the State Duma that would raise the age of purchase of limited-damage firearms, firearms for self-defense, sports, gas, hunting and signal weapons to 21 years.

The Russian government also did not support the bill. According to the Cabinet of Ministers, the adoption of the bill will lead to the restriction of the labor rights of citizens aged 18 to 21, who will not be able to engage in labor activities involving the carrying and use of weapons.
