"The American Journal" host Harrison Smith reported about the leaked documents during the April 10 episode of his program on the InfoWars network. The documents, he said, give a rare window into the depth of American intelligence gathering.
According to Smith, the leaked documents have rattled U.S. officials, "who fear the revelations could jeopardize sensitive sources and compromise important foreign relationships." He added that many other countries were affected by and discussed in the leaked documents.
"These document leaks – really, hundreds of pages have been leaked. Everything from Ukraine to Russia, to China to South Korea and Israel – they are all implicated in it," said Smith. (Related: About that New York Times story concerning the "online leak" of U.S. Ukraine and geopolitical plans.)
The leaked documents revealed the full extent of American efforts to infiltrate the Russian Ministry of Defense and pro-Russian military groups, including private military contractor the Wagner Group.
Based on the leaked documents, the U.S. was able to intercept plans to target Ukrainian critical infrastructure, including thermoelectric power plants, electric substations and railroad and vehicle bridges. Much of the information was gathered via intercepted communications, which are now likely to shut down as the Russians learned how compromised their communications networks are.
The documents also revealed U.S. efforts to spy on political and military leaders of Ukraine to the dismay of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
These espionage efforts show Zelensky wanting to strike Russian deployment locations in Rostov Oblast using drones last February. If this intelligence is accurate, it could explain public U.S. comments about not wanting to give Ukraine long-range missile systems over fears that they will be used to conduct strikes within internationally recognized Russian territory.
Some U.S. officials think the Russian government and pro-Russian groups are behind the leaks. But these same officials admit that they still do not have the data to back up this claim.
Meanwhile, military analysts believe the leaked documents are legitimate, but altered in some places. One of the documents put Ukraine's death toll at about 71,000, a figure military analysts considered believable. But the same document showed Russian fatalities at only around 16,000 to 17,500. This figure is thought to be much greater in reality.
U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told lawmakers in late March that the U.S. estimates that "the Russians have well over 200,000 casualties."
Mykhailo Podolyak, head of the Ukrainian Office of the President, said the edits suggest that the leak is probably a Russian disinformation operation.
"These are standard elements of operational games by Russian intelligence, and nothing more," said Podolyak. "Russia is looking for ways to seize back the initiative. To try to influence the scenarios for Ukraine's counteroffensive plans."
The leak emerged as preparations for Ukraine's long-awaited spring offensive draw to a close. The operation is expected to begin in the coming weeks. Fortunately for Kyiv, none of the leaked documents contain any essential details concerning the coming operation.
