EuroChem Shifts Focus

FRANKFURT — Andrei Melnichenko has cut his stake in German potash miner K+S to less than 10 percent, down from almost 15 percent since the last notification 10 months ago, as he seeks to fund the development of costly potash deposits in the Ural Mountains.

K+S said Tuesday that investment vehicles held by Melnichenko, including EuroChem fertilizer group, have reduced their combined stake to 9.9 percent.

In October last year, EuroChem walked away from negotiations to jointly develop the Verkhnekamsk potash deposits in the Urals with K+S or other foreign partners. EuroChem said at the time that it was looking at various funding options, including an IPO, to fund the development on its own.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
