MOSCOW, November 22. /ITAR-TASS/. CEO of Russian potash producer Uralkali, Vladislav Baumgertner, who had been extradited to Russia from Belarus on Friday night, was staying in Moscow’s pretrial detention centre, a spokesperson for the Federal Penitentiary Service, Kristina Belousova, confirmed.
The plane from Minsk landed at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport at 23:17 Moscow time. Baumgertner was escorted by Federal Penitentiary Service officers, a source familiar with the situation told Itar-Tass.
Baumgertner was arrested in Belarus in late August on charges of office abuse and placed under house arrest in the Belarusian capital Minsk. Later the Belarusian Investigative Committee dropped abuse of power charges against him, replacing them with embezzlement. On November 20, the Belarusian prosecutor-general’s office agreed to extradite him to Russia.
