FORNEBU, Norway, and MOSCOW -- On 28 July 2009, the Moscow Arbitrazh Court rejected a motion by Telenor East Invest AS to invalidate an order by the bailiff to transfer the assignment to sell Telenor's shares in VimpelCom to Rosimuschestvo (The Federal Property Management Agency).The basis for the Court's rejection of Telenor's motion will be known when the Court's decision is published in full.

In its motion, Telenor emphasized that the bailiff's order violates the law on enforcement procedures, since the order was made without a preliminary estimate of the value of the arrested VimpelCom shares owned by Telenor. As a consequence, the minimum price of the shares is still unknown, which conflicts with the law and violates Telenor's rights.
