Press Release
April 24, 2007

Tero Kivisaari new head of business area Eurasia

The CFO and deputy CEO, TeliaSonera Eurasia, Tero Kivisaari will as of May 1,
2007 assume the assignment as President TeliaSonera Eurasia. Kivisaari is 35
years old and holds double exams from Helsinki University of Technology and
Helsinki School of Economics. He has been with TeliaSonera for ten years.

Tero Kivisaari will replace Erdal Durukan who at his own request will resign to
pursue other interests, as from May 1, 2007.

"After 13 years of developing Telecom in Turkey, Central Asia and Eastern
Europe, with Turkcell and Fintur, it is a natural step for me to pursue new
challenges. The years with TeliaSonera have been very prosperous - the whole
region is going through an expansive and exciting period - and Business Area
Eurasia constitutes today approximately one third of TeliaSoneras net result",
says Erdal Durukan.

"Erdal Durukan has done an excellent job for TeliaSonera and we wish him success
in the future", says Anders Igel, President and CEO, TeliaSonera.

"Tero Kivisaari has during the last five years had a very important role in
developing our operations in Eurasia. He will provide us with the required
continuity in our future efforts," Anders Igel adds.
