The Pentagon continues to assess the extent of the recent leak to the network of classified data and is not yet ready to say how many documents have become public, Sabrina Singh, deputy spokeswoman for the department, said on Monday.

“We are continuing to assess this,” Singh said during the briefing.

Thus, she answered the question of journalists about whether the department fears that any other confidential documents that the Pentagon is not yet aware of may circulate on the network.


Currently, the Pentagon is investigating a leak on the social network of materials describing the state of the Ukrainian troops and the plans of the United States and NATO to strengthen them. The New York Times noted that the documents, dated early March, are allegedly distributed in “Russian pro-government telegram channels.”


It was alleged that more than 100 documents could get on the Internet, the damage from what happened is estimated as significant. The Pentagon told that they were studying information about the leak. The press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, answering a question about the leak, said that the Russian Federation had no doubts that the United States and NATO were directly or indirectly involved in the Ukrainian conflict.
