Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has indirectly hit the country’s oligarchs through sanctions, as well as the country’s top tech company, Yandex, whose shares have collapsed and whose deputy chief executive resigned due to sanctions imposed by the European Union. But the war is also affecting employees of another Russian tech giant and one of the most well-known and respected antivirus makers: Kaspersky. From the report: After the intrusion, at least two employees told Motherboard they were asked to be transferred out of Russia. A third source still at the company also told Motherboard that some Kaspersky employees were asked to resign after those employees were asked to live and work elsewhere. Instead of agreeing with them, the company asked them to resign because the company’s founder, Yevgeny Kaspersky, emphasized the importance of standing by his side during difficult times, according to two former employees who eventually quit. Kaspersky has several employees in different countries who work out of one of the 35 offices in 31 countries that the company claims to have. At a regularly scheduled general meeting days after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, employees were asked if the company would consider relocation requests.
