The activities of the black diggers in the Kaliningrad region takes on a menacing new timbre. Such statement on air of radio “Komsomolskaya Pravda” has made archaeologists Kaliningrad Evgeny Kalashnikov and Ivan Zhadnov.

According to them, the scandal associated with the activities of “black diggers” (archaeologists call them in any case impossible, because the science these people do not have the slightest relationship) broke in the late 90s, when Moscow on the “black market” suddenly pop up exhibits from the famous collection of “Prussia”.
