MINSK, September 30 (Itar-Tass) - Diplomats from the Russian Embassy to Belarus expect to meet on Monday with Vladislav Baumgertner, CEO of the Uralkali potash company arrested in Belarus.
“We expect to meet with him in the morning, but don’t rule out a meeting may take place later. The main thing, however, is that we have received permission,” the head of the embassy consular department, Igor Karyagin, told Itar-Tass.
He said Russian diplomats wanted to know whether he felt well and also find out whether he had any requests. The diplomats will inform reporters on the results of their meeting.
It was earlier reported that a measure of restraint was mitigated for Baumgartner on September 26, when he was taken from custody and placed under house arrest.
Uralkali CEO was arrested in Minsk on August 26 and placed in an investigation ward of the State Security Committee on charges of abuse of power and office positions and causing damage amounting to $100 million to Belaruskali company and the Belarusian Potash Company (BKK). The BKK is the joint enterprise of Uralkali and the Belarusian state fertilizer producer Belaruskali.
