MOSCOW, December 14. /TASS/. Russian security software maker Kaspersky Lab is closing its regional office in Ukraine, the company’s representative Yulia Krivosheina told TASS.
"We decided to close our regional office there because the country’s government restricted foreign economic activities of Kaspersky Lab Ukraine," she said.
She added that the company's products will be sold in Ukraine through distribution channels.
Kaspersky Lab specializes in developing protection against viruses, spam and cyber attacks. The company operates in more than 200 countries and has headquarters in Moscow.
Kaspersky Lab was put on the sanction list in Ukraine in the autumn of 2015. "But it is now, when they have issued a regulation to limit our foreign trade activities," Krivosheina said.
The company has not yet decided on the future of the personnel of its Ukrainian office.
