GORKI, August 26 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has issued all necessary instructions, including to the Russian Foreign Ministry, in connection with detention of Uralkaliy’s chief Vladislav Baumgertner.
“The head of the Russian government has given all necessary instructions, Russian agencies, including the Foreign Ministry, are working to implement them,” Russian First Vice-Premier Igor Shuvalov told journalists on Monday.
He added that the Russian government considered the detention of Vladislav Baumgertner, the general director of the Uralkaliy company, in Minsk as an unfriendly gesture which was not in the spirit of partnership.
“We know that the Uralkaliy head stayed in Minsk at the invitation of the Belarusian prime minister and that he was detained at the airport after the talks,” Shuvalov went on to say. He added that the Russian government was closely following the situation, which was unfolding according to a very “tough” scenario. Shuvalov described that as particularly regretful because the project between Uralkaliy and its Belarusian partner had been implemented as part of integration processes within the framework of the Customs Union and a future Common Economic Space.
“The Russian government has got nothing to do with the current scandal and a complicated situation caused by the fact that the single export window has been destroyed,” the first vice-premier emphasized.
