A group of transparency advocates on Friday posted a mammoth collection of hacked and leaked documents from inside Russia, a release widely viewed as a sort of symbolic counterstrike against Russia’s dissemination of hacked emails to influence the American presidential election in 2016.

Most of the material, which sheds light on Russia’s war in Ukraine as well as ties between the Kremlin and the Russian Orthodox Church, the business dealings of oligarchs and much more, had been released in Russia, Ukraine and elsewhere, sometimes on obscure websites. There were no immediate reports of new bombshells from the collection.

But the sheer volume of the material — 175 gigabytes — and the technical challenges of searching it meant that its full impact may not be felt for some time. The volume is many times greater than the total known material stolen by Russian military intelligence from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign nearly three years ago.

The core files from the new collection, called “The Dark Side of the Kremlin,” included “hundreds of thousands of messages and files from Russian politicians, journalists, oligarchs, religious figures, and nationalists/terrorists in Ukraine,” said the group that posted it, Distributed Denial of Secrets, or DDoSecrets. The name is a play on the term for a common cyberattack known as a distributed denial of service.

The documents include a voluminous archive of material hacked from Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs that WikiLeaks had declined to publish in 2016, telling Foreign Policy magazine the next year that it “rejects all submissions that it cannot verify” or that it finds “insignificant.”

Also posted are a large collection of Russian emails and other material obtained by Shaltai Boltai, a Russian hacking group; documents from the Russian arms exporting agency Rosoboronexport; and material obtained in what DDoSecrets called a “hacking spree” against Russian targets accused of falsifying the story of the downing in Ukraine of a passenger plane, Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, in 2014.

The Russian documents were posted simultaneously on the DDoSecrets website and on the Internet Archive.

Facepalm

I wish these people would fact check just a little on some of these points instead of regurgitating Brock propaganda.

The DNC 'hack' was Podesta related. Hillary's unsecured servers were a completely different matter and related to her time at the State Dept. Most of those emails are finding their way into the public by way of Judicial Watch and their series of FOIA lawsuits.

The only evidence that there was a 'hack' of the DNC/Podesta emails comes from the DNC itself. They hired a DNC affiliated company to 'investigate' and blocked law enforcement and intelligence agencies from examining the servers. IMO, this is essentially the same as one of their activists spray painting ethnic slurs on their own house in order to highlight how oppressed they are. The difference is that they've been using this to flog everyone for years and no one official seems to grasp that it's just another of their pity me scams.

Several other groups looked at metadata and other related bits of info and came to the conclusion that it was an internal leak and not a hack based on the transfer rates of the files. It would be impossible to do it at those rates from the outside.

Exactly. That was VIPS (Veteren Intelligence Professionals for Sanity) who found it. It HAD to have been done from a device directly connected to a server port. Could NOT have been done through even the highest web transfer speeds.

It's such a killer point, so completely knocks the Russian hack story right out of the park, why hasn't someone like Fox been spreading it since forever. It's not as if the VIPS conclusion couldn't be verified by an independant lab. There is nothing in it to explain why Fox hasn't picked it up and made it the standard response whenever the idiots they have on their panels raises "Russia!" Instead the fools mekely acquiese and concede the talking point that Russia dun it. Which plays directly into the DS propaganda fantasy about how Russia is a US enemy.

Fox has not been Fox since they forced Roger Ailes out.

The Murdoch boys that took over trend toward the globalist. This is why you have rabid libs on there with their own blocks of programming spreading the same BS that CNN does.

It's going to get worse until even Tucker Carlson gets fired no matter how popular his show is.
Yep.

Competing messages are propaganda's kryptonite.

That's why all the channels get the same talking points.

Fox would be a major loss on the truthiness front despite its faults, if it switched sides.
