It looks like the CIA/NSA, MI6, DGSE, BND, MSS, etc. (that is the United States, British, French, German and Chinese) intelligence services will have to break out their old intelligence methods.

The Federal Guard Service of the Russian Federation (Федеральная служба охраны, ФСО – Federalnaya Sluzhba Okhrany) is buying German typewriters at over $700 each.
