Picture Introduction,

Papers found at the bus stop provide information about the passage of a warship along the coast of Crimea in the conflict zone between Ukraine and Russia.

Sensitive British Defense Ministry documents detailing armed forces’ actions in conflict zones were found at a bus stop in the county of Kent, south-east England.

An excerpt from the documents discusses the prospects of a Russian response to the passage of a British warship through Ukrainian waters off the coast of Crimea last Wednesday (23).

Another set of papers found at a bus stop for a possible British military presence in Afghanistan after the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) operation ended.

The British government said it had started an investigation into the matter. A Defense Ministry spokesman said an official reported the loss of sensitive documents and said: “It would be inappropriate to comment further on this matter.”
