Not everyone knows that Russia is the world’s largest producer and exporter of ammonia — it ships this indispensable fertilizer component all over the world, while international giants like Yara, CF Industries and PotashCorp rely on Russian export volumes when budget their production costs. All these enormous volumes of ammonia produced in Russia mainly by three dominant producers, including EuroChem, Togliattiazot and Uralchem. We already reported before, that the usually quite and calm world of mining and natural resources development in Russia looks like a desert storm, mainly because of the conflict around Togliattiazot, which starts to remind us by the level of action some similar cases happened before with Norilsk Nickel (conflict of Deripaska and Potanin over the asset) and TNK-BP (conflict of Abramovich and Berezovsky over Sibneft assets which brought them to the UK court). Russians do get aggressive sometimes, when huge piles of money at stake and in case of Togliattiazot the piles of ammonia are very big.
