The CEO of Russian fertilizer firm Uralkali, one of the world’s largest producers of potash fertilizer, has been detained in Minsk and charged with abuse of power, a spokesman for the Belarusian Investigative Committee said Monday.
In July, Russian fertilizer giant Uralkali formally dissolved an international cartel with its former Belarusian partner company, Belaruskali, claiming that the Belarusian side was selling potash outside the bounds of their partnership agreement. In August Belarus arrested Uralkali’s CEO, Vladislav Baumgertner and charged him with abuse of power. The country is also seeking the extradition of billionaire Suleiman Kerimov, the largest Uralkali shareholder, on similar charges.
