Nothing new here. Russia's selling weapons to lunatics in Iran so they want to build a story that shows why Iran 'needs' them.
It's more likely that Putin's internal enemies are spying on him.
As for Kaspersky, why would any sane person use Russian software on their computer? What? It never occurred to you that any company that makes anti-virus software is certainly able to build snooping software that it wouldn't be able to 'detect' on your machine?
