|By:, SA News Editor

The potash spat continues to get uglier, as Belarus investigators reportedly intend to seize property and assets of Russia's Uralkali (URALL.PK) following the collapse of the joint Russian-Belarussian potash venture.

Investigators say Uralkali had inflicted $100M in damages to Belarussian interests.

Belarus earlier today detained Uralkali chief Vladislav Baumgertner, drawing a fierce rebuke from Moscow.
