I can’t believe this keeps happening: leaked Ukraine War plans spread in part through a Minecraft Discord server

Classified military documents have yet again been blasted out into the world by a gaming community, and for once it’s not War Thunder’s fault. The documents in question are related to US and NATO plans to support Ukraine’s military effort against the ongoing Russian invasion, and according to Bellingcat researcher Aric Toler (via Vice (opens in new tab)), an early leak point was an unofficial Minecraft Discord server.

Some of the leaked documents eventually found their way to 4chan, where—in classic internet fashion—they were being shared to win an argument. The 4chan docs appear to contain estimates of Ukrainian and Russian losses in the war, and a map of the contested city of Bakhmut.
