KALININGRAD, May 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Police in Russia’s westernmost Kaliningrad Region uncovered a hideout that contained a large batch of amber worth €87 million, the regional interior department reported on Monday.

The hideout with 1,300 bags of amber weighing over 29 tons was found at a German World War II warehouse in the town of Baltiysk.

“All the proceeds from the planned sale of amber were intended for financial support of an organized criminal group engaged in the shadow trade of amber both in Russia and abroad,” the interior department said.
