MINSK, November 13 (Itar-Tass) - Russian diplomats have been allowed to meet with Uralkali CEO Vladislav Baumgertner kept under house arrest in Minsk.
"On Wednesday morning, the Embassy received a positive reply to its inquiry regarding the possibility of a meeting with Baumgertner," a Russian embassy official told Itar-Tass. The time of the meeting will be set later in the day.
Russian diplomats said Belarus had not answered their first such inquiry forwarded on October 31.
Baumgertner was detained in Minsk on August 26. He was charged with abuse of authority and office power. The charges were later changed to theft. In late September, he was moved from a remand prison to a rented apartment house in Minsk after the court changed the measure of restraint to house arrest.
Russian diplomats last met with Baumgertner in late September.
