15min (Lithuanian: Penkiolika minu?i?) is one of the largest news websites in Lithuania, and is owned by Estonian media company Postimees Grupp. The website attracts over one million unique users per month and is led by CEO Ram?nas ?au?ikovas.
15min was founded in 2005 as a free daily newspaper published in Vilnius, Kaunas, and Klaip?da and was distributed in public buses, streets, and some cafés. In December 2011, it became a weekly newspaper circulating in seven Lithuanian cities. The newspaper was closed in 2013 as the company decided to concentrate its operations on digital platforms only.
In March 2019, in conjunction with the Sarajevo-based Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, 15min broke a story regarding a nearly $9 billion global money laundering scheme allegedly constructed by Sberbank CIB (formerly known as "Troika Dialog"). The scheme is known as ?kioLeaks or Troika Laundromat.
