    Kaspersky Lab has been included in Ukraine's new sanctions list of almost 400 individuals and 105 legal entities from Russia and other countries published earlier in September. Ukraine said the sanctions were a defense measure in light of the ongoing conflict in the southeast of the country.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab, the largest privately-owned cybersecurity company in the world, is not planning to exit the Ukrainian market despite the sanctions imposed by the Kiev authorities against it, the company’s head of Corporate PR told Sputnik on Wednesday.

    “Kaspersky Lab will continue its operations in the Ukrainian market in full compliance with Ukrainian laws, providing protection to commercial organizations and individual users,” Kseniya Volnova said.

    She added that Kiev's restrictions applied to government procurement only.

    According to the company, Kaspersky Lab has operated in the Ukrainian market since 2006, has been a diligent taxpayer and has used cutting-edge technologies to provide protection against cyberthreats to its customers, including government organizations and businesses.

    Kaspersky Lab provides protection to over 400 million users and 270 thousand companies worldwide, ranging from large enterprises to small and medium businesses.
