Kaspersky Lab statement on the U.S. Treasury list of Russian politicians and businesspeople

The inclusion of Eugene Kaspersky on this list is incorrect because the term “oligarch” refers to those who combine large personal fortune with political influence, and neither he nor Kaspersky Lab have any political ties with any government, including Russia.

The inclusion of Eugene Kaspersky on this list is incorrect because the term “oligarch” refers to those who combine large personal fortune with political influence, and neither he nor Kaspersky Lab have any political ties with any government, including Russia. The list however very obviously seems to be taken from the Forbes list of richest people in Russia and doesn’t seem to have any other criteria than net worth. More than 82% of the company’s revenue, and thereby a substantial share of Eugene Kaspersky’s personal wealth, is earned outside of Russia. Kaspersky Lab will work to contest this inaccurate designation.
