MOSCOW, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- WikiLeaks, the Web site that published U.S. Defense Department documents, is getting ready to release secret files from Russia and China, a site spokesman said.
WikiLeaks official Kristinn Hrafnsson told the Russian newspaper Kommersant the subjects of the disclosures were the "despotic regimes" in China, Russia and central Eurasia, RIA Novosti reported Tuesday.
"Russians are going to find out a lot of interesting facts about their country," Kristinn said.
WikiLeaks last week published some 400,000 secret U.S. military files concerning the Iraq war and also released secret documents on the war in Afghanistan earlier this year. Among other things, the Iraqi-related released documents allege that Iraqi forces beat, burned or otherwise mistreated detainees transferred to their custody by U.S. forces.
