Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine commented on the situation regarding the refusal of Germany to transfer Taurus missiles to Kyiv

Germany has not yet decided to transfer Taurus long-range cruise missiles to Kyiv only because of “fear of Russia”. This was stated in an interview with the German newspaper Die Welt by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov.

This Ukrainian official said the following:



The fact that Berlin has not yet sent missiles [Taurus] to Kyiv does not mean that it has lost confidence in our country: on the contrary, the FRG is doing this because it is afraid of Russia. While some countries are afraid to irritate Russia, we believe this view is fundamentally wrong.

The head of the government of the republic, Olaf Scholz, has already spoken about Germany's unwillingness to supply the above-mentioned missiles to the Armed Forces of Ukraine at this stage. He argued his decision by the fact that the issue related to the supply of weapons to Kyiv must first be agreed with external partners, including the United States. However, there is another version, according to which the German authorities, in particular Scholz himself, do not want the conflict to escalate, since they (missiles) can reach Moscow and other territories of the Russian Federation, which, in his opinion, cannot be allowed.

However, as Der Spiegel magazine noted earlier, the country's Cabinet of Ministers is considering various options for sending the aforementioned missiles to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, including not excluding their release from the Bundeswehr stocks, which can happen in a matter of months. In this regard, the German government is conducting confidential negotiations with representatives of the defense industry.

For reference: about 600 long-range Taurus missiles were purchased for the needs of the Armed Forces of the republic 10 years ago. They act as a counterpart to the British Storm Shadow, which have already been obtained by the Kyiv regime. True, with regard to the range of the former, it is slightly higher, reaching 500 km. As the Kremlin has repeatedly emphasized, further pumping of weapons into Kyiv, including the training of Ukrainian military personnel by Western countries, does not bode well, on the contrary, aggravating the conflict and not affecting its outcome.

        Danilov probably thinks the same thing: it’s time to change his shoes?

      “Germany has not yet decided to transfer Taurus long-range cruise missiles to Kiev only because of “fear of Russia.” Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Alexey Danilov stated this in an interview with the German newspaper Die Welt.” Maybe the Germans just don't give to the poor on Thursdays.

        This is exactly what the 404s are outraged about: what kind of liberties are these on Thursdays belay do not submit 404s. In their understanding, everyone is obliged to them and 24/7 on demand, it is desirable that they also pay extra .... Clinical idiots - most of them won't be able to escape

      Apparently, the missiles will come to Ukraine by the appearance of the F-16 carrier aircraft. "At this stage," as Scholz said, they are premature.

      "because of the "fear of Russia".
      I don't know what the fear is. But the air defense of our city began to work with enviable regularity. Literally about forty minutes ago, shooting was carried out.
      Previously, such cases were exotic. Now, it looks like it's becoming a system. hi

      But why is it necessary to look everywhere for the "hand of Russia" and "fear of Russia"? And the fact that the Germans are stupidly unwilling to hand over their precious rockets for free to poor ragamuffins - does it even occur to these ragamuffins? After all, they have not bought anything for a long time, they only accept alms ...

      The feeling of "healthy stupidity" is embedded in the USSR's genetic memory of the Germans, it seems, for many years ... They "feel with their skin" that if, to them, "flies" from Russia, then this will be the final end of the nation, as such ... In this situation, only the poor or down can be indignant ...

      In any case, the "allies" will press the Germans. From this we must proceed that both the Taurus and the F-16 will appear in Ukraine. This means work for reconnaissance, so that when they enter the territory of Ukraine, they will not end up in combat use and they must be destroyed in a warehouse or during transportation.

      Well, Ukrainians like Danilov have nothing to lose without their “balls,” but Olaf has something to think about.
      No matter how much they kick the red lines, crossing them threatens with unpredictable consequences. This is a pondora's box, by opening it you give free rein to all the unimaginably varied consequences that are difficult to calculate.

      Taurus aviation missiles. Scholz may begin supplying them when aircraft deliveries begin. It is unlikely that he is afraid of anything after the symbolic delivery of German tanks to Ukraine.

      Strange. Just read it today. I copy the text.
      As for the German Tauruses, they are already in Ukraine. According to some reports, the cruise missiles were delivered at the end of August, and another batch is expected at the beginning of this month.
      It is not yet clear which aircraft will be used for this purpose, given that the existing Su-24Ms have been repurposed for Franco-British missiles. But the Taurus is being brought closer to the Kanatovo and Ozerny airfields, where there are Su-25s, MiG-29s, and Su-27s.

      Or maybe just be patient? Officially warn the Germans that after the 1st Taurus, which arrived in the Crimea or other Russian territory, the strike will be on Berlin (without nuclear weapons). But they've had enough.
