Russian tycoon Evtushenkov denies interest in Uralkali
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian tycoon Vladimir Evtushenkov, the owner of Russian oil-to-telecoms conglomerate Sistema (SSAq.L) (AFKS.MM), said on Monday he was not interested in acquiring a stake in Russia's Uralkali (URKA.MM), the world's largest potash miner by output.
Billionaire Suleiman Kerimov may sell his stake in Uralkali, financial media reported earlier on Monday, citing sources, and Evtushenkov was named among the potential bidders.
"I read all this too. There is nothing behind this," Evtushenkov told Reuters, when asked if the media reports were true and whether he was interested in Uralkali's stake.
