 Amber apocalypse: hundreds of people illegally mine amber near Kukhotska Volia in Rivne region. VIDEO

AutoMaidan activists took another trip to the sites of illegal extraction of amber in the Ukrainian Polissia. This time they got to Kukhotska Volia village situated almost on the border of the Rivne and Volyn regions.

As reported by Censor.NET quoting AutoMaidan community, the activists revealed hundreds of people illegally mining for amber on an industrial scale. Over a 100 water pumps, tractors, and excavators are at their disposal. No one fears apprehension or anything. People just arrive and get down to work right on the spot.

In July 2015, Poroshenko gave security officials two weeks to tackle the issue of illegal amber mining. In fact, production scale only grew.
