The newspaper said the documents were posted on Twitter and Telegram and allegedly contained charts and details of arms shipments, battalion strength and other sensitive information. The information in the documents is at least five weeks old, with the most recent being March 1, the report said.
One of the documents summarizes the training schedule of 12 Ukrainian combat brigades and says nine of them have been trained by US and NATO forces and need 250 tanks and more than 350 mechanized vehicles, the newspaper said.
The documents – at least one of which is marked “top secret” – were released on pro-Russian government channels, the report said.
Information in the documents also details spending rates on munitions under Ukraine’s military control, including for HIMARS missile systems, the US-made artillery missile systems that have proven highly effective against Russian forces.
