British and American special forces are inside Ukraine, leaked documents claim: MoD denies suggestion that as many as 50 UK elite troops are operating in warzone against Putin’s forces
As many as 50 British special forces operators are currently deployed in Ukraine, allegedly leaked US intelligence documents suggest.
Britain has the largest contingent of special forces on Ukrainian soil, alongside more than a dozen operators each from fellow NATO states Latvia, France and the US, according to a document dated March 23.
The Ministry of Defence warned against taking allegations contained in the reported leak of classified information at ‘face value’, posting on Twitter: ‘The widely reported leak of alleged classified US information has demonstrated a serious level of inaccuracy.’
Some of the classified documents, which were leaked online and have been widely circulated on social media, appear to have been doctored, according to Pentagon spokesman Chris Meagher.
