According to Times of London writer Gordon Fisher, the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ seems to have been first made available to the Russian public in 1905:

“The first version in book form appeared as an appendix in the third edition, in 1905, of a book called (in Russian) The Great in the Small: Antichrist considered as an imminent political possibility, by a Russian mystic named Sergei Nilus. The original manuscript, which has never been discovered, may well have been written in French and translated into Russian.”

Fisher, along with others, believe the text to be antisemitic in nature:

“The [document] is, to many people, obviously a clumsy piece of false antisemitic propaganda. Nevertheless, there have been and still are others who have taken and take the work to be a kind of revelation of the truth about a conspiracy of a small number of Jewish leaders to gain political control of the whole world.”

So far on Twitter, there have been mixed reactions to the official FBI Vault release:
