In Rivne region, ZIK filming crew faced threats and obstruction at illegal amber quarries

25.12.2014, 15:09

Unidentified men threatened the ZIK journalist in Rivnenska oblast Anna Makhno “to find her”, if the news story about illegal mining of amber in Sarnenskyi rayon of the oblast were aired. These men took away the light from the TV channel's cameraman Bohdan Riabunets' camera and threatened to throw it into the fire. 
Anna Makhno said that the filming crew was not allowed to get to the quarries with a camera. They were not threatened directly, yet they were hinted that this location was dangerous and a person who wants to take a walk there, especially with a camera, can fall into the water and no one would give them a hand.
