Swedish media are reporting that top managers of Lattelecom's half-mother TeliaSonera are being guarded by armed bodyguards because of unnamed threats to their lives. According to Swedish TV8, these threats may be coming from Russia.
It seems rather a bizarre scenario that Russian goons/hitmen would be sent to Sweden to harm TeliaSonera honchos, but the company does have interests in the Russian mobile market and has been up against Russian bidders for a mobile operator in Turkey. Still, it is far fetched that the Russian mafia would go after anyone other than, at worst, the local TeliaSonera affiliate management in Russia.
Perhaps the Russians don't know about the Swedish James Bond, Carl Hamilton, who would get sent after their sorry asses if they so much as harmed a hair on any Swedish executive's head.
ADDED FEB 16: Just want to credit reader Bleveland for tipping me off to this story. I had to find an English language version so that most readers could understand it.
