MOSCOW, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russian security services continue to use the typewriters to protect the information, a well-informed source in the security services told Itar-Tass.
In comments on the media reports over the purchase of 20 typewriters by the Federal Guard Service, the source noted that “the typewriters always worked.” “They are also used now to print the labels, prepare several documents, which do not envisage having an electronic form,” the source said, noting that this is “the normal practice to ensure security of the information.”
For his part, spokesman of the Federal Guard Service Sergei Devyatov told Itar-Tass that “according to the law on state security the special communication line of the agency is provided by the leadership of the country through a highly reliable confidential communication line.” “Meanwhile, this concerns telephone conversations in the country and abroad,” he noted.
Devyatov added that the so-called hotlines between the heads of states that recently marked 50 years of their operation also function in the similar mode of confidentiality. This is the first line between the Soviet Union and the United States, which was established on June 20, 1963, six months after the Caribbean Crisis.
The media reported before that after the revelations of former CIA agent Edward Snowden and the reports about the eavesdropping of Dmitry Medvedev’s talks during his visit for a G20 summit in London, the Federal Guard Service decided to expand the practice of making paper documents and ordered 20 typewriters for the purpose.
