Sergey Urzhumtsev, the chief designer of the concern, said that the first AK-12 rifles were supplied to the troops in 2019.

"During the use of the rifle, there were certain comments and suggestions that the concern promptly introduced. The pool of comments was collected on the basis of the experience of its use in the special operation,” he said.
