MOSCOW, August 26 (Itar-Tass) - The Russia-based Uralkaliy company, one of the world’s biggest producers of potash fertilizers, on Monday resolutely condemned the detention of its general director Vladislav Baumgertner in Belarus.
“We are absolutely outraged by his detention and consider it to be a gross provocation on the part of the Belarusian authorities. We demand his immediate release,” Alexander Babinsky, a spokesperson for Uralkaliy, told Itar-Tass on Monday.
He added that Baumgertner’s detention, far-fetched charges against Russian nationals and the use of Interpol was designed to hinder Uralkaliy’s activities in international markets.
Babinvsky noted that Baumgertner had been detained at Minsk airport after his meeting with Belarusian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich held at the latter’s request.
The Uralkaliy’s spokesperson said that the company had informed the Russian Foreign Ministry of the incident.
