In particular, the on-site headquarters of the National Guard have been located in key areas of this illegal business – Rivne, Zhytomyr and Volyn regions.
"The police have taken full control of the ‘amber mafia’. We and the National Guard have the on-site headquarters in Rivne, Zhytomyr, and Volyn regions. There were even manifestations in Kyiv region, near the Chernobyl NPP, but they had been quickly curtailed," Troyan said.
