On December 19, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine legalized extraction of amber and imposed fine worth 3,000-10,000 tax-exempt minimum personal incomes (UAH 51,000-170,000) of imprisonment for 2-3 years for its illegal extraction.

A total of 279 parliamentary members backed respective bill 2240 in principle, when 226 votes were enough to pass the decision, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.
