Western newspapers are that Russia is to typewriters to computer leaks. However, Russian newspapers say this is not true. Western media says the Kremlin to keep its secrets secret by using the old-fashioned machines. The BBC that Russia's intelligence service (FSO) bought the typewriters because of the leak of information on WikiLeaks and recent leaks by former U.S. intelligence worker Edward Snowden. The FSO reportedly the Russian press that these scandals, plus reports about Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev being in on at the G20 summit in London, it has "decided to the practice of paper documents”.

A Russian government department said the Kremlin 20 electric typewriters for around $14,800. The FSO reporters that: “This purchase has been for more than a year now.” It also said the order has nothing to with WikiLeaks or Edward Snowden. An FSO official Russia's RT news agency that the FSO has always typewriters. He said that it was simply time to new ones because the old equipment was out of date. He said: "It’s not something unusual.…The time came to them. All the special services use them, the Ministry of Defense.” A reader of the RT website : "A $5 padlock is often more effective than a $24,000 surveillance system."
