Uralkali Not Resuming Work at Accident-Hit Solikamsk-2 Mine

Russia's Uralkali did not say when work at the Solikamsk-2 mine would be resumed.

Russia's Uralkali URKA.MM, the world's biggest potash producer, said Monday it was not discussing a full or partial resumption of work yet at the Solikamsk-2 mine, halted last week after an accident.

Reporters quoted Chief Executive Dmitry Osipov earlier on Monday as saying work would resume at half of the damaged mine. But Uralkali later issued a statement explaining the company was discussing the possibility of starting "the backfilling of areas which could be considered potentially hazardous."

… 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.
