Regardless... Putin is at the very least the face of the new Capital-Stalin-ish Russia.

So you link to an article from an anti-virus company, Kaspersky, to support your beliefs? Are you actually running anti-virus software on your Mac? Do you realize that every piece of software that you install becomes yet another attack vector? OS X doesn't need anti-virus software beyond what Apple is doing, when the computer is used with presence of mind, and common sense. Know your computer, don't blindly trust a third-party company to be looking out for your best interests.
Given their track record in uncovering state-sponsored malware (e.g. http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/02/how-omnipotent-hackers-tied-to-the-nsa-hid-for-14-years-and-were-found-at-last/) and the fact that they were singled out for causing problems for GCHQ hackers, Kaspersky probably has more credibility than most when it comes to computer security. That said, the inherent security in desktop OS's has been pretty comparable since Vista, and no antivirus will be of much help against state-funded adversaries.
