The new rifle is already being produced

The "Ukroboronprom", a Ukrainian state-held defence industry concern, revealed their new assault rifle "Maliuk" ("the kid"). 

Video presentation of a new Ukraine-made weapon is available on the venture's YouTube channel. 

"The rifle is an in-depth modernization of the AK-74 with a bullpup model, which provides significantly shorter barrel length and makes it more compact, as well as shifting the centre of gravity to a more comfortable plain, which significantly improves the accuracy of fire," the video explains.
