Former NATO Secretary General: Germany is too hesitant to provide military support to Ukraine

Germany is too hesitant about armed support for Ukraine

Former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has said that Germany is too hesitant to provide military support to Ukraine. According to him, the German government was slow to make decisions when it came to important decisions on the supply of weapons.

He also expressed confusion as to why Taurus missiles are not yet on the battlefield in Ukraine. He said this in an interview with the German TV channel n-tv.

According to him, German politicians have been discussing Leopard tanks for months, and now Germany is looking for excuses not to send Taurus cruise missiles to Ukraine.

Fogh Rasmussen emphasized that such an ambiguous position of Germany gives Russian dictator Vladimir Putin an additional incentive to continue the war. In addition, he said that due to such fluctuations, Chancellor Olaf Scholz will not become a chancellor of peace, but a "chancellor of eternal war."

"Therefore, I continue to urge Chancellor Scholz to approve the delivery of Taurus missiles as soon as possible. We must lift all restrictions on arms transfers. Both in terms of what weapons we supply and how they are used," said the former NATO Secretary General.

As a reminder, Scholz said that Germany allows the Ukrainian Defense Forces to use German weapons to strike military targets in Russia to protect the Kharkiv region. However, Berlin will not be transferring long-range Taurus missiles to Kyiv.

Earlier it was reported that Scholz strongly opposed an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine. He said that without deep negotiations and a clear roadmap to a just and lasting peace, such a pause would only legitimize Russia's seizure of Ukrainian territories and create a new frozen conflict.
