Details: In response to the question "Should Germany supply Ukraine with cruise missiles?", only 25% of respondents answered "yes", while 66% said "no".


As noted, this attitude is typical of voters across the political spectrum in Germany.

As reported, Ukraine has officially requested Taurus cruise missiles from Germany.

A few days ago, CDU defence expert Roderich Kiesewetter spoke in favour of sending German Taurus cruise missiles to Ukraine. He said these missiles, which have a range of up to 500 km, would enable Ukrainian forces "to strike Russian military infrastructure far behind the front line".


About 600 Taurus missiles were purchased for the German armed forces a decade ago. Of these, "about 150" are still in operation today.

Defence Minister Boris Pistorius has responded cautiously to Kiesewetter's proposal. At the same time, he also said he believed that "we should support Ukraine with all the systems permitted by international law which are necessary to win this war, and which we can provide."
