A 63-year-old civilian employee of the U.S. Air Force has been arrested and indicted for allegedly disclosing secret national defense information related to Russia's war with Ukraine, officials said.

In a news release posted Monday, the Justice Department said David Franklin Slater of Nebraska, who was arrested on Saturday, allegedly shared the classified information on a foreign online dating platform.

Slater supposedly shared the information with a female claiming to be in Ukraine in early 2022, starting around the time when Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24 of that year.

"The Department of Justice will seek to hold accountable those who knowingly and willfully put their country at risk by disclosing classified information," said Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen of the DOJ's National Security Division.
