Pursuant to a decision passed by the National Security and Defense Council, Prime Minister Yatsenyuk had the National State Telecommunications Service uninstall all Russian software products, such as those produced by Kaspersky Lab, and disable an update option in the already installed ones. According to the Cabinet of Ministers’ press service, the Prime Minister made a statement to this effect at a cabinet meeting.

“All bodies of executive power are to ensure that companies included on the sanctions list have no access to budget funds,” said Yatsenyuk. The government also banned Russian airlines Aeroflot and Transaero from flying to Ukraine. All transit flights of Russian airlines carrying military equipment, soldiers or so-called dual purpose cargo over Ukrainian territory are banned, too.
