The US Department of Defense said the highly classified information had been released. And the State Department said it would not prevent the United States from supporting Ukraine.
The US Department of Defense has admitted that highly classified information has entered the Network, the disclosure of which poses a very serious risk to national security. Chris Meagher, an aide to the head of the Pentagon, said this, Bloomberg reports.
According to him, as a result of the leak, “highly secret, classified” information was made public, which poses a “very serious risk to the national security” of the state.
“This is highly classified classified material that people in the Department of Defense and, of course, other US authorities use for their work,” said a spokesperson for the US Department of Defense.
Meanwhile, the US State Department said the Pentagon’s “leaked documents” will not prevent the US from continuing to support Ukraine. This was said at a briefing by the Deputy Head of the US Department of State Vedant Patel, who answered the questions of journalists.
“We will continue to support Ukraine in the face of brutal Russian aggression as long as necessary, but I will not go into details on this topic,” he said.
Patel added that the Ukrainian authorities will independently plan military operations on the front.
Earlier, the American edition of the New York Times reported that allegedly classified documents appeared on Twitter and Telegram with details of plans by the United States and NATO to strengthen the Armed Forces of Ukraine ahead of the planned counteroffensive. According to the publication, the Pentagon is allegedly investigating who may be behind the “leakage” of the documents. Soon after, the United States announced a new leak of a batch of secret documents describing US national security principles. The documents relate to the war in Ukraine, China and the Middle East.
