and Foreign Minister Annalena Bärbock

The head of the German Foreign Ministry, Annalena Bärbock, is privately trying to convince Chancellor Olaf Scholz to transfer Taurus long-range missiles to Ukraine.

According to Spiegel, the official has long refrained from making direct statements to Scholz; he did not perceive this as pressure. However, she is secretly working on a plan to still ensure the transfer of the Taurus to Ukraine without violating the Chancellor's “red lines”, in particular on involving the Bundeswehr in targeting.

One option is to transfer the missiles to the UK, after which it is the United Kingdom that will provide them to Ukraine and will control the deployment of weapons and the choice of targets for destruction.

Berbock is convinced that this is not just a weapon system, but a signal to allies in Europe that the defeat of Ukraine is unacceptable for their situation security. .

  • The Bundestag again voted against providing Ukraine with the Taurus.
  • Annalena Bärbock herself announced the idea of ​​transferring the missiles to Britain.
  • Chancellor Scholz once again explained why he does not want to give the Taurus to our country.
