Putin: Kaspersky Lab would have been even better, if screws hadn’t been tightened
Programmer and entrepreneur Yevgeny Kaspersky can serve as an example of Russia’s tech pioneers, and is a leader in his field, Russian President Vladimir Putin told TASS in an interview for its project entitled "20 Questions with Vladimir Putin".
"We have Kaspersky. I believe that he is really good in his line of business," the Russian head of state said when asked whom Russia might offer up to be on par with Silicon Valley’s Elon Musk. He added that Kaspersky was not the only frontrunner.
The president pointed out that the head of the Kaspersky Lab might have scored far greater achievements, if it hadn’t come up against artificial hindrances in other countries.
