The so-called chuck for forced stopping of vehicles.

I can add that this Ukrainian bullet was not developed by the Research Institute of Special Equipment, but by the State Scientific and Research Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The cartridges were contract made for them by the company known as “Cobra” (Laboratory of Applied Chemistry Ltd.), also from Ukraine.

Here the manufacturer statement on the projectiles and their use during the Maidan riot.
Very interesting to read for those speaking Russian/Ukrainian.
