Kremlin orders typewriters to boost security, reports media

Various media outlets have reported that the Russian security service has placed an order for new typewriters worth almost £10,000.

The FSO, responsible for security at the Kremlin, is believed to have ordered the electric typewriters for the safe drafting of notes and reports.

The increase in use of paper based documents comes after thousands of US government documents have been made public by the website Wikileaks.
