British authorities have launched investigations into how defence ministry emails intended for U.S. military intelligence ended up with Russian ally Mali.


Ministry of defence officials were trying to contact the pentagon, whose domain name is “.mil”, but accidentally sent the mails to Mali, which has the domain name “.ml”.


Britain’s ministry of defence however said the information that was mistakenly shared was not highly sensitive.


Mali has cultivated close ties with Russia since a 2021 coup while distancing itself from former colonial power France and other western nations.
