Vladimir Potanin, one of the major shareholders of the Russian metals giant Norilsk Nickel, had rejected the so-called “shootout” for control over the company before the U.S. imposed sanctions against co-owner Oleg Deripaska, he said in an interview with The Financial Times released on April 13.
“The destiny of a company like Norilsk Nickel, of that significance to the country’s economy, should not be solved with a game of roulette. It is a bit insulting for people working there. Politically, economically, financially; it is an unacceptable way of resolving this situation,” Potanin said.
On April 6 the U.S. imposed sanctions against 38 Russian tycoons, officials and companies including Deripaska. (Prime/Ukrainian metal)
