Report: Potanin opposes СshootoutТ for control of Norilsk Nickel
MOSCOW, Apr 13 (PRIME) -- Vladimir Potanin, one of major shareholders of Russian metals giant Norilsk Nickel, had rejected a so-called СshootoutТ 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 Friday.
УThe destiny of a company like Norilsk Nickel, of that significance to the countryТs economy, should not be solved with a game of rouletteЕ It is a bit insulting for people working there. Politically, economically, financially; it is an unacceptable way of resolving this situation,Ф Potanin said.
On April 6, the U.S. imposed sanctions against 38 Russian tycoons, officials and companies including Deripaska.
