Limited distribution: Russian Orthodox charity emails (15 GB)
Emails from the department for Church Charity and Social Service of the Russian Orthodox Church
In the Cyberwar category, we are listing about 57,500 emails from the Russian Orthodox Church's charitable wing.
Due to the possibly sensitive nature of the dataset, we are including it as Limited Distribution, which means it is only available to researchers and journalists upon request.
For new readers, the limited distribution request process works like this:
Researchers and journalists with a background in publishing can get in touch with our email. Please include in your request enough information to verify your research background, such as links to previously published research. We give priority to requests from researchers who publish without a paywall, and who have a history of studying leaked datasets.
In request emails, we will look for you to:
Explain why access to the material is needed and what you intend to do with it.
Include enough information to verify your credentials or purpose.
If you intend to reproduce any data, explain how it will be reproduced and who it will be shared with
Your request will probably be rejected if:
You don't provide a way to verify your request or identity. Official email addresses are best.
You're just curious.
You're a hacktivist that wants to exploit the data.
You're a researcher without a clear journalist or academic project.
You offer only generic information.
Due to limited time, we may not be able to respond to rejected requests.
