Putin has declared a state of emergency in the region and complained of what he said was a bungled state response. “If you had changed it on time there would not have been this ecological damage and the company would not have had to foot these costs. Study this as closely as possible inside the company,” Putin told Potanin during the televised meeting.

Shares in Nornickel, the world’s leading nickel and palladium producer, were up 3% in Moscow after the meeting, having previously been hit by fallout from the disaster.Putin’s spokesman earlier on Friday dismissed the idea of the government ousting Potanin after a Russian lawmaker said he should go following the spill.
