Management changes in TeliaSonera

TeliaSonera has today appointed Harri Koponen as President of the profit
center TeliaSonera International and in that way strengthened management
of this operation. The profit center contains TeliaSonera's
international holdings in the Fintur Companies, Russian mobile operator
MegaFon, Turkish mobile operator Turkcell and the international carrier
operation.

Aimo Eloholma, currently President of TeliaSonera International, will
continue in the profit center with operational responsibility and
reporting to Harri Koponen.

Terje Christoffersen, currently heading TeliaSonera's operations in
Denmark, will succeed Harri Koponen as Head of the corporate operational
unit Marketing, Products and Services. The operations in Denmark will
until further notice report directly to Kenneth Karlberg, President of
profit center TeliaSonera Norway, Denmark, Baltics.

"The current development in the Russian and Turkish markets and the
growth opportunities in TeliaSonera International call for a
strengthening of our management in this area," Anders Igel TeliaSonera
President & CEO comments. "We are also pleased to recruit Terje to
headquarters. He will represent a welcome addition to the management of
the Group. Terje has a good track record from his previous tasks both
within TeliaSonera and externally. This will be important for the
fulfilment of his new task which is of great importance for the
TeliaSonera Group," concludes Anders Igel.

Forward-Looking Statements
Statements in the press release relating to future status or
circumstances, including future performance, other trend projections and
other benefits of the transaction are forward-looking statements. By
their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty
because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will
occur in the future. There can be no assurance that actual results will
not differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-
looking statements due to many factors, many of which are outside the
control of TeliaSonera.
