Leaked Documents Show U.S. Spied on U.N. Leader, Reveal Russian Infighting over Ukraine

HeadlineApr 14, 2023

A newly discovered batch of classified U.S. intelligence documents leaked online shows infighting among Russian officials over the war in Ukraine. The documents reveal Russia’s Federal Security Service accused the Russian military of downplaying the number of casualties in Ukraine due to the reluctance of officials to convey bad news up the chain of command. Other newly discovered leaked documents reveal the U.S. has been closely spying on U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres. U.S. intelligence officials accused Guterres of being overly soft on Russian President Vladimir Putin. Meanwhile, Germany’s foreign minister has urged China to use its influence on Moscow to push for an end to the war, following similar calls from French President Macron and the EU.
