Kaspersky CEO ‘would leave if Russia asked him to spy’

Kaspersky Lab has never been asked by Russian intelligence services to spy on targets in the West, the company’s founder and the chief executive said. Eugene Kaspersky told reporters at a media briefing at the company’s offices in London that “they have never asked us to spy on people. Never.” He added he would move his Moscow-based company out of the country if he ever faced such a demand, Reuters reports. “If the Russian government comes to me and asks me to anything wrong, or my employees, I will move the business out of Russia,” Kaspersky said. He said the company was under attack by the US media and the US government.
