MOSCOW, September 17. /TASS/. Russia’s largest producers of Internet security software, Kaspersky Lab and Doctor Web, have found themselves on the list of companies banned from operations in Ukraine by the decree, which President Pyotr Poroshenko endorsed on Thursday.
From now on, the two companies cannot sell their produce to Ukrainian state organizations and manufacturing facilities.
Kaspersky Lab press service refrained from immediate comments on the problem.
Data provided by the IDC analysis company controlled about 50% of the market of antivirus software in Ukraine in 2014. In 2015, this market will likely shrink by 10%, the report said.
Kaspersky Lab, Doctor Web and the company Eset were major players on the Ukrainian market of antivirus soft in 2014.
In the meantime, Kaspersky Lab’s own research puts Ukraine among the countries leading the world in terms of the spread of viruses.
In 2014, a total of 47% of Internet users in that country survived computer virus attacks.
Ukraine’s sanction list embraces 105 Russian corporations. Restrictions have affected a number of Russian airlines, including Aeroflot and Transaero , and major banking institutions where the Russian government has stakes, including Gazprombank and Rosselkhozbank.
