Belarus vs Uralkali CEO

Uralkali CEO Vladislav Baumgertner was detained in Minsk on August 26, 2013. According to the Belarusian authorities, the criminal case against him was launched as the result of a probe into abuse of power allegations that led to grave damage to the public interests of Belarus. The charges followed a decision by Uralkali to dissolve its international cartel with Belaruskali, sending potash prices spiraling down. Baumgetner was turned over to Russia after a Moscow court sanctioned his arrest in absentia.
