Russian mobile operator, Vimpelcom, has posted a 3Q 2008 Net Income of $269 million under U.S. GAAP.

Vimpelcom added that while it has not yet been affected by financial turmoil, it won’t be immune to the downturn in the Russian economy and is taking steps to minimize its impact – freezing new capital expenditure orders, cutting non essential expenses, implementing a hiring freeze, and renegotiating contracts with suppliers and vendors – and is also prepared to introduce additional measures as events unfold.
