Russia opens criminal case vs. Uralkali CEO in move to defuse potash rift


Russian authorities say they opened a criminal case against the jailed chief executive of potash producer Uralkali (URALL.PK) and are seeking his extradition from Belarus to face charges in Russia, in what could be a face-saving move to defuse the potash rift.

Russia's main investigative agency says its review of the case indicates enough evidence to charge the Uralkali chief in Russia, though political analysts doubt he would serve any prison time even if convicted.
