Chairman of the Munich Conference: Scholz's refusal to provide Ukraine with Taurus has become even more unclear

Christoph Goisgen calls on Scholz to reconsider his refusal after the US delivered ATACMS missiles to Ukraine

Training of the Ukrainian military on the Taurus system could have been started long ago to put it into operation without the need to send Bundeswehr soldiers. Therefore, the position of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on the inadmissibility of supplying Ukraine with these cruise missiles is becoming increasingly unclear.

The chairman of the Munich Security Conference, Christoph Goisgen, said this in an interview with the German Editorial Network (RND). He urged Scholz to reconsider his refusal after the US delivered ATACMS missiles to Ukraine.

"After this, the chancellor's decision not to supply Taurus missiles to Ukraine becomes more and more incomprehensible. And now we see how similar American weapons, namely ATACMS missiles, have a great impact," the diplomat said.

In his opinion, the Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin will agree to negotiations only when he is convinced that Russia cannot win the war against Ukraine.

"In recent weeks, we Europeans have had to painfully realize that our arms supplies to Ukraine are not enough to stop Russia's brutal aggression," Goisgen emphasized.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said that after the United States announced the supply of ATACMS missiles to Ukraine, Germany should transfer Taurus cruise missiles. According to him, the final decision now depends on Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

As a reminder, the US announcement that it will provide Ukraine with long-range ATACMS missiles has revived discussions in the German Bundestag about the transfer of its long-range Taurus missiles to Kyiv. The German opposition called on German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to finally make this decision.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, at a press conference on April 24, Scholz said that he was not going to change his decision to supply Ukraine with Taurus missiles. At the same time, he emphasized that Berlin would continue to support Ukraine so that it could resist Russian aggression.
