Vulkan Files


Thousands of pages of secret documents reveal how the Moscow-based defense contractor NTC Vulkan helped Russian intelligence agencies to strenghten their ability to launch cyberattacks, sow disinformation and surveil the internet. An international investigation led by Der Spiegel and paper trail media uncovered NTC Vulkan's links to "Sandworm" and "Cozy Bear".


The investigation is based on confidential corporate documents which were provided to Hannes Munzinger by an anonymous whistleblower who expressed anger about Russia's invastion of Ukraine. "I hope you can use this information to show what is happening behind closed doors", the whistleblower stated.


Due to the overwhelming public interest, paper trail media has published a small selection of the #VulkanFiles on Documentcloud. Metadata has been changed respectively stripped.
