So, they have a problem only with russian antivirus? All others are no problem?

It's most likely the case that all western AV companies readily respond to National Security Letters and/or Warrants - providing the NSA/GCHQ with all the information that they need. Kaspersky on the other hand, is probably more difficult for the NSA/GCHQ to secretly coerce, hence they need to exploit their software.

Or maybe the Russian antivirus software companies are just the most popular?
