According to The Moscow Times, Russia's Federal Guard Service has "decided to revert to using typewriters to produce secret documents" due to "the much-publicized leaks of secret information by the NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden."
An unidentified source in the service told Izvestia newspaper that following reports that the NSA targeted then President Dmitry Medvedev during his visit to Britain for the G20 summit in London, the agency has decided "to expand the usage of hard-copy documents."
Each of the typewriters will have its own signature, so it will be easy to trace where a particular document came from.
The revelation came as a result of a large-scale leak by Snowden, who currently finds himself stuck in extraterritorial limbo in Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport while he awaits decisions on his asylum requests to different countries. A number of Latin American countries have spoken out in support of Snowden, who is trying to escape being brought to justice in the United States.
