Newsmakers (Goryachie Novosti)
Newsmakers (Russian title: Goryachie Novosti / Горячие новости) is a 2009 Russian remake of the 2004 Hong Kong film Breaking News. Directed by Anders Banke, the film is about a group of criminals who are holed up in a Moscow apartment building after a shootout with the police, and the efforts of law enforcement to turn the situation to their advantage after they were humiliated on television by the criminals.
The following weapons are seen in the film Newsmakers (Goryachie Novosti):
Beretta 92FS is used by Kolyan in the opening shootout. Near the end of the film, in apartment, Kolyan used his Beretta 92FS & Kley's Reck Miami 92F to kill soldiers before he died. Valery (Artyom Semakin) also used suppressed Beretta 92FS to kill Smirnov's team & soldiers.
Reck Miami 92F
A Reck Miami 92F (standing for Beretta 92FS Inox) is used by Kley (Maxim Konvalov), one of the criminals, to shoot a traffic police officer and later when the criminals take over the apartment of Yura (Grigory Baranov) and hold his family hostage. He incorrectly described it as 16-round while showing it to Yura's son. Kolyan is seen using his Beretta 92FS & Kley's Reck Miami 92F to kill soldiers before he died near the end of the film.
A Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) Spetsnaz soldier is briefly shown with a Glock 19 pistol when some of the criminals make an escape attempt. At the beginning of the film, Kon is seen cleaning a Glock 19 but he never fired in shootout. Valery (Artyom Semakin) carried Glock 19 as his backup weapon, pointing it at Orda who went in the apartment during standoff.
The Makarov PM is the standard sidearm for all Moscow Militsiya officers, including detective Smirnov (Andrey Merzlikin) and his team. Makarov PMs are also used by some MVD soldiers when they raid the apartment building, and is briefly used by detective Katya Verbitskaya (Maria Mashkova) when she searches for Herman (Yevgeni Tsyganov), the criminal leader.
A Stechkin APS is used by the Killer (Sergei Garmash), an assassin who along with his partner Valery, become trapped with the criminal gang in the apartment building. The Killer uses the Stechkin to shoot Smirnov as he and Herman attempt to escape from the building.

Sawed-Off Double-Barreled Shotgun
A 12 gauge sawed off shotgun, likely a Russian-made Baikal, is seized from a crackhead by Smirnov and used by him as he attempts to track down Herman and the Killer.
Kedr PP-91 submachine guns with 30 round magazines are used by soldiers throughout the film, first by OMON officers during the opening shootout, and later by MVD Spetsnaz soldiers at the apartment building. Orda & Kley also used their captured PP-91s during their attempt to escape the police cordon.

A Heckler & Koch MP7 fitted with a suppressor is carried by an OMON officer accompanying a sniper.
The AKS-74U is used by Herman during the opening shootout. Some of the MVD Spetsnaz soldiers raiding the apartment building also use AKS-74Us.
The criminals and police both make frequent use of the AKS-74 rifle, most prominently during the opening shootout. Orda uses an AKS-74 fed from a PKM belt box. Such a combination does not exist in real life as the two weapons systems are incompatible calibers and feed systems.
