Earlier this year, the LRT Investigation Department investigated the links between the Kremlin, Agrokoncernas and Minudobreniya.

In its press release, Agrokoncernas states that "politicians are using the capacities granted to state institutions to intentionally harm the reputation and activities of UAB Agrokoncernas."

The company states that at least another eight companies in Lithuania trade in Minudobreniya fertiliser. However, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs contacted the Prosecutor General's Office only regarding their company.

Agrokoncernas states that it views such actions as harming the company in pursuit of political goals.

The UAB Agrokoncernas appeal to the president and prime minister requests to evaluate the specified actions by the foreign minister and his public statements.
