The Russian financier, Vladimir Antonov, who wants to become part owner of Saab, is appealing in a personal letter to Maud Olofsson, Swedish minister of industries to do all she can to save Saab from collapse.

Maud Olofsson told Radio Sweden that she was surprised by the letter where the Antonov, according to Olofsson, writes that he appreciated that Olofsson herself and the government had a strong commitment to Saab.


“The government has done more to Saab than perhaps any other company in Sweden. It has involved more in the company though it is important that we have a Swedish automotive industry. But the company must always manage their own affairs in the company,” says Olofsson to radio Sweden.

About the letter that Antonov to here she said that “I would probably be lying if I said I was not surprised. He wrote because he felt that I was important and he has seen what the government and I have done nothing. It is reasonable to listen to those who know how this job works and than to listen to those who may not be as informed,” says Olofsson
