According to media reports on Sundays, secret documents obtained from the British Ministry of Defense (MOD) contain confidential information about warships and the British military found at the bus stop in Southeast England.
Mod said an employee reported the loss of documents last week, which was discovered by community members in a wet stack behind the bus stop in the early kent on Tuesday morning, the BBC report said.
A set of documents reportedly discussed the possibility of the Russian reaction to the HMS Defender’s journey through the waters of Ukraine from the Crimean Coast on Wednesday and others describing the plan of a possible British military presence in Afghanistan after the US-led NATO operation ended this year.
“It is inappropriate to comment further,” said MOD spokesman because the investigation was confirmed to be launched into the incident.
Public members, who want to remain anonymous, found 50 pages of 50-odd documents and contacted the BBC when he realized the sensitive properties of its contents. The BBC believes the documents, including email and PowerPoint presentation, come from the senior official office in MOD.
The documents relating to the Destroyer Type 45 Royal Navy, Defender HMS, indicate that a mission described by the mod as “innocent part through the territorial waters of Ukraine”, with closed weapons and the ship’s helicopter, is stored in its obstacles, carried out in hopes. That Russia might respond aggressively.
On Wednesday, more than 20 Russian aircraft and two court boats overshadowed a warship while sailing about 19 km from Crimea Beach. The Ministry of Defense Moscow said a patrol ship fired a warning and a jet shot dropped a bomb on the destroyer road, but the British government rejected this account, denying every warning shot had been fired.
The mission, nicknamed “Ditroite”, is a high-level discussion subject on Monday, the document shows, with officials speculating about Russian reactions if the HMS defender sails close to Crimea.
Document bundles also include updates about weapon export campaigns, including sensitive observations about areas where Britain may compete with European allies. And there was a brief record for the last Monday’s session from the UK-US defence dialogue, including observations in the first month of US President Joe Biden in the office.
According to the government, most papers are marked “official sensitive”, the relatively low classification level used, “where there are clear requirements and can be justified to strengthen ‘need to know'”.
But one document, aimed at the British Secretary of the Defense Personal Secretary Ben Wallace, and marked “Eyes Secret UK Only”, outlined compassionate recommendations for the British military footprint in Afghanistan. Following the final support of the operation, NATO operations ended the time. To wake up the decision of President Joe Biden earlier this year to attract American troops.
The document discussed American demand for British assistance in specific fields and discussed whether all British special forces would remain in Afghanistan after the withdrawal was complete.
Because of the document’s sensitivity, the BBC said he had decided not to report details that could endanger British security and other personnel in Afghanistan.
