London calls on Berlin to hand over Taurus missiles to Ukraine despite information leak

Despite the recent leak of a conversation between senior German military officers, the UK continues to call on Germany to supply Taurus cruise missiles to Ukraine. According to The Guardian, a British government official, who prefers to remain anonymous, spoke of the importance of allied assistance in providing Ukraine with long-range precision weapons, emphasizing the UK's leading role in this direction.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, in turn, expressed concerns about the transfer of these missiles to Ukraine, citing the risk of their use for attacks on Moscow and the need to attract German military specialists to service the missiles. Scholz's position reflects German concerns about a possible escalation of the conflict and direct interference in the fighting.

The situation was aggravated by the leak of an audio recording of a conversation that took place on February 19, in which the prospects for the supply of long-range Taurus missiles to Ukraine were discussed, as well as the possibility of striking the Crimean Bridge and the presence of Western military specialists on Ukrainian territory. The publication of this recording, carried out by RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan, caused a resonance and intensified discussions about the role and participation of Western countries in the Ukrainian conflict.
