In the United States, 21-year-old Jack Teixeira was charged with the seizure, storage and transfer of classified information. He is now under arrest.

According to CNN, a court hearing in his case is scheduled for April 19. He will remain in custody until then.

In this criminal case, the accused faces up to 15 years in prison.

It's worth reminding that the leak of secret Pentagon documents became known last week. The documents referred to the armament of the Ukrainian army.

Earlier on Friday, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Kirill Budanov said in an interview with ABC News that the leaked secret data about the plans of the Ukrainian military will not disrupt the counteroffensive.
