Не диверсии. "Антивирус" Касперский, как касса чекистов в USA. Бывший советник по нацбезопасности Майкл Флинн получил $45 тыс от RT и $11.3 тыс от Kaspersky.
Flynn Got $56,250 From Russian TV, Cyber Firm, Documents Show

Former U.S. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn received more than $45,000 from RT, the Russian government-backed television network, for his participation at a gala where he sat at President Vladimir Putin’s table, according to documents released Thursday by congressional Democrats.
Flynn also received $11,250 from Kaspersky Government Security Solutions, Inc., described as the U.S. subsidiary of Kaspersky Lab, a Russian cybersecurity firm, according to the documents. That firm was caught up in a Russian espionage investigation in December. Russian prosecutors have charged a manager at the company with treason, saying he and two Russian information-security officials were “interacting” with U.S. intelligence officials, according to a defense lawyer in the case.
Flynn resigned in February after reports that he misled Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. A lawyer for Flynn didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
The documents confirming the payments were secured from Flynn’s speaker’s bureau by Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The speaker’s bureau took a cut of the payments, the documents show.
A retired Army lieutenant general, Flynn had previously acknowledged receiving a payment from RT but refused to disclose the amount. Retired Army personnel are not supposed to accept honoraria from foreign governments or companies with significant ties to them without prior approval.
Democrats on the oversight panel previously sought documentation of such approval and said the Department of Defense told them there was none.
