USA, new leak of top secret documents on the Ukraine crisis

A new leak occurred a day after materials about the preparation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces for a counter-offensive were leaked on social media (Ukraine called it a "pseudo-leak").Now more than 100 documents appear on social networks, which relate not only to Kiev, writes the New York Times. A new batch of secret American documents has appeared on the Internet that relate to Ukraine, the Middle East and China, as well as the fight against terrorism, according to the New York Times. The US Justice Department said it has launched an investigation and is in contact with the Pentagon on this matter.

According to the newspaper, more than 100 documents were published on Twitter and other social networks on Friday. One of them is dated February 23 and is marked with a confidential stamp: it means that the data it contains is not intended for transmission to other countries. According to officials and analysts interviewed by the newspaper, the extent of the leak of confidential information could cause " serious damage". US intelligence officials called the event a "Five Eyes Nightmare" (From FVYE, reminiscent of the English five -five- , an intelligence alliance that includes the United States, Australia,

Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom). Mick Mulroy, a former Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) official, said the leak was a "significant security breach" that could interfere with Ukrainian military planning "It appears to have been a deliberate leak by someone who wanted to undermine the efforts of Ukraine, the United States and NATO," he said. The day before, the New York Times reported that social media were leaked secret Pentagon documents on the conflict in Ukraine. The newspaper said one of the documents marked as confidential describes the "state of the conflict as of 1 March". Other material contains brief information on 12 new Ukrainian brigades, nine of which are apparently trained and supplied by the United States and other members of the Atlantic Alliance. US authorities are working to remove these documents from social networks, but on Thursday night they were still online.
