MOSCOW, July 12. /TASS/. The introduction of sanctions against the Russian company Kaspersky Lab by the United States is politically motivated, Russia will do everything to protect the interests of the company abroad, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"Of course, we believe that this is a politically motivated decision," Peskov said.
"We regret seeing such decisions. However, the company has the necessary legal means to protect its interests and, of course, Russia as a state will also continue to do everything possible to protect the interests of our companies abroad," he added.
Earlier, the administration of the US President Donald Trump limited US state structures’ use of Kaspersky Lab products against the background of rumors in the US media about the company's connection with the intelligence services of Russia. The press service of the company told TASS that Kaspersky Lab has no political ties with any of the world's states and does not engage in cyber espionage.
