The trove of classified U.S. national security documents recently made public contain “a serious level of inaccuracy” and should be taken with a grain of salt, UK Defense Ministry said in a Twitter message on April 11.

“The widely reported leak of alleged classified U.S. information has demonstrated a serious level inaccuracy,” the message reads.

“Readers should be cautious about taking at face value allegations that have the potential to spread misinformation.”

On April 6, The New York Times, citing sources in the White House, reported that the Pentagon was investigating a leak of classified documents relating to U.S. and NATO efforts to prepare the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the coming counteroffensive. Recently, classified materials, dated March 1, appeared on Twitter, Telegram, and across other social media and messenger apps.

The following day, more papers were made public, allegedly revealing U.S. efforts to spy on its allies in Asia and Middle East.

U.S. authorities are investigating the source of the leak and attempting to assess how damaging it could prove to Washington’s national security and relationships with allies.
