Kuleba dismisses fears of transferring Taurus missiles to Ukraine

Aug 13, 2023

Germany's transfer of long-range Taurus missiles to Ukraine will not lead to escalation. This will help end the war faster.


This was reported by RBC-Ukraine concerning Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba in an interview with Bild.

Kuleba dismissed the German government's concerns that the transfer of long-range missiles would allegedly lead to escalation.

"First, because other partners have already delivered missiles with a similar range. Secondly, no previous decision by Germany to supply Ukraine with a new type of weapon has led to an escalation. On the contrary, German weapons have already saved many Ukrainian lives," the minister said.

According to the Foreign Minister, fears that Ukraine could use Taurus missiles against targets in Russia are "unfounded."

"We will use missiles only within our borders to liberate what rightfully belongs to us following the UN Charter and international law," Kuleba said.
