General Director of Uralkali, Vladislav Baumgertner, was extradited from Belarus to Russia, spokesman for the Prosecutor General of Belarus Pyotr Kiselev said Thursday. In the near future, the businessman is going to return to his homeland. Meanwhile, Vladislav Baumgertner's Belarusian attorneys said they had not received a formal notice.
