Details: Scholz was repeatedly asked why Germany does not supply Ukraine with long-range Taurus missiles after his speech.


"It's a strange question because you know that Germany spends the most in Europe (on supplies to Ukraine)," the chancellor said, pointing out that Germany is the second-largest supplier of weapons to Ukraine after the United States.

After being asked about the reasons for the slowdown in the missile deliveries, he stressed that it was a matter of finding the right time to start supplying them. "It is important to make the right decisions at the right time. And we are making those decisions," the chancellor explained.

Scholz avoided a direct answer to the question regarding the supply of Taurus missiles, though he hinted that there would be progress in what Germany is ready to supply to Ukraine. "Step by step, we continue to make the right decisions," he said.

Background: Earlier, European Pravda reported that the government coalition was pressuring Scholz to deliver the Taurus missiles to Ukraine. On 24 January 2024, reports emerged that London offered Berlin a way to solve the Taurus dilemma for Ukraine.
