The Witch (Russian: Ведьма, Vedma: Ukrainian Відьма, Vidma) is a Ukrainian-Russian mystery TV-series about Slavic witchcraft. The story takes place in a small Russian village far from any cities or even towns. Nearly all of its inhabitants often seen the witch's activity.
Note 1: While this TV series is set in Russia, it was filmed in Ukraine which results in the choice of firearms.
Note 2: While the Russian language is the only spoken language in the series (obviously due to the Russian setting), this TV series was previously released in Ukraine and as such was equipped with unremovable Ukrainian subtitles.
The following weapons were used in the television series The Witch (Vedma):
Numerous characters can be seen with the Makarov PM pistol throughout the series. This TV series was filmed in Ukraine, so these are likely Ukrainian-produced Viy pistols.
Makarov PM - 9x18mm Makarov
Bor'ka (Alexander Popov) finds the Viy pistol in a car. (ep.04)
Roman (Maksim Radugin) takes this pistol for himself and unloads it. (ep.04)
Gosha (Kostyantyn Kosinskyy) aims his Viy at Roman (ep.16). (Ukrainian subtitles mean "You [still] didn't answer my question. You know, where she could be?")
Roman grabs the Viy from Gosha. (ep.16)
Criminal Boroda (Viktor Danylyuk) holds the pistol. (ep.18)
Criminal Yasha (Pavlo Levitskyy) very briefly holds an M1911 in episodes 7 and 8 (in episode 8, it is seen very briefly and it's impossible to create a screenshot).
Original Colt M1911 (dated 1913) - .45 ACP
Yasha draws his pistol at the background; only his hand can be seen. (ep.07) (Ukrainian subtitles mean "Freeze! Listen me!")
The EKOL Viper is the personal firearm of the crime boss Baro (Sergey Kalantay). It didn't see action. This gun is possibly standing in for a Colt Anaconda. Either way, it's very unlikely that the boss of the small gang in the village might be owning an expensive Western handgun.

Baro puts his revolver on the table. (ep.08) (Ukrainian subtitles mean: "If you will find Zoya in my home, you may take it.")
Baro draws his revolver. (ep.20) (Ukrainian subtitles mean: "Unarmed? You are alone and unarmed just now.")
The grip of Baro's revolver can be seen. (ep.20)
