Virus Damaged Documents. Any help?

I was recently hit with a form of Ransomeware that Kaspersky failed it pickup.
Long story short; I got rid of the virus but now some of my more sensitive documents have been corrupted by the malware (ones that did not make it to the weekly backup).
This is one of them:

Any help in recovering this document would be greatly appreciated.

No. If not backed up, they are lost. Newer ransomware evades antivirus so that is just a cat and mouse game.

Some older encryptions (and so also trapped by anti virus) may possibly have been broken (Kaspersky), but newer ones - no.

When the ransomware striked it showed you some info of what virus encrypted your data...then you write the name of the virus to google and hope for the best...

I would try

and
https://www.nomoreransom.org/

But as already mentioned there is very little hope :-(

Problem is, this ransomware didn't encrypt my files in normal ransomeware manners; It f**king corrupted the files like no tomorrow.
In addition, my Anti didn't catch the virus; I cam across the files being corrupted in batches, so I booted into SafeMode and proceeded to look for the virus myself. I shredded it before it finished it's job, so I don't know that much about it.

Still have my fingers crossed here, guys. But thanks for the input.
