"We are now near Kukhotska Volia village in the Rivne region. It's some madness going on here, hundreds of people are mining for amber. There is a big number of different equipment: tractors, excavators, dozens of operating pumps. No one fears apprehension or anything, nobody hides, even checkpoints are not there. People just arrive on motorcycles, cars and get down to work right on the spot," the activists note.
