Avakov says 2.64 tons of amber have been seized; the minibus driver carrying it has been detained.
The investigation is underway.
"The future of the amber is being considered at the moment. Of course, it's within investigator's competence, but the law provides for taking a decision on selling this amber at auction and transferring the raised funds to state budget," Yatseniuk said.
He noted the value of the seized amber was about 60 million hryvnias (about $2.7 million).
