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

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