Leaked documents reveal that the UK and other countries have special forces operating within Ukraine, prompting a US investigation and UK denial.
Dozens of leaked documents reveal that several countries, including the UK, have military special forces operating within Ukraine. The leaked files, some marked “top secret,” provide sensitive details about Ukraine’s preparations for a counter-offensive. The document states that the UK has the largest contingent of special forces in Ukraine (50), followed by fellow NATO states Latvia, France, the US, and the Netherlands. It is unclear what these forces are doing or where they are located. The leak has prompted the US government to investigate the source, while the UK Ministry of Defense has not commented, citing a “serious level of inaccuracy” in the leak.
