Uralkali Falls Most in Two Weeks as Worker Killed: Moscow Mover

OAO Uralkali, the world’s largest potash producer by output, fell the most in two weeks in Moscow today after the sinkhole near its former production unit widened, killing a worker.

The shares lost 1.6 percent to 252.23 rubles at 3:05 p.m. in Moscow. The benchmark Micex Index rose less than 0.1 percent.

The company suspended repair work at the shuttered production unit after sand and gravel that were filled into a sinkhole collapsed, killing a worker, the company said in a statement.
