Bykov’s production of “Volunteers” was slated for a 2016 release, but has not yet been released.

A typical document can be seen below, which was sent from “ACK1” ([email protected]) with the subject line “Monitoring 22 September.”The document entitled “Thematic monitoring for 22 September 2015,” as seen in the screenshot above, includes the date of monitored materials, and three columns for Russian, Ukrainian, and “Electronic Center of ‘Novorossiya’” for the topic of elections in the Donbas.

The document gives brief synopses of articles on this subject in Russian state media (TASS, RIA Novosti), independent or semi-independent Russian media (NTV, RBC), and various Ukrainian outlets (TSN, 112, Ostrov).

The first dump of emails was widely viewed as genuine, including from American and Ukrainian intelligence officials.

In DFRLab’s analysis, all evident indications pointed towards the authenticity of the leaked materials.

Analysis of the second leaked inbox, with emails ranging from November 2014 to September 2016, shows many of the same concerns in these emails, along with new revelations.

Like with the first leaked inbox, the second batch of Surkov emails was published by a Ukrainian hacker group — this time by “Kiberalyans” (Cyber Alliance), which includes “Cyber Hunta,” the publisher of the first inbox. PST files — data files for Microsoft Outlook inboxes — the second inbox are .These inboxes are not Surkov’s personal inbox, but something closer to “The Desk of Vladislav Surkov,” in the context of an American or British business.In both inboxes, there are superfluous emails that match their respective hosts: the first inbox had routine messages from Russian government IT employees, while the second inbox is filled with spam from advertising services and mentioning holidays.One of the best ways to verify leaked materials is to juxtapose information in the released emails with available open source information, along with considering the degree of difficulty to forge these materials.For example, a PDF document with no metadata attached to it that describes nefarious plans with no verifiable references should be viewed with more skepticism than receipts for airline tickets with verifiable booking codes.Elena Petrova is an online dating coach with 16 years of experience in the industry of relationships.
