Russian propagandists said that representatives of the German Bundeswehr discussed strikes on the Crimean bridge with long-range Taurus missiles.

Propagandist Margarita Simonyan said about the "intercepted" conversation of high-ranking officers of the German army.

According to her, one of the German officers mentioned a planned trip to Ukraine on February 21 to "coordinate strikes on Russian targets", and an Air Force inspector of the Bundeswehr allowed the transfer of 100 Taurus missiles to Kyiv in two batches. 

The attack on the illegally built bridge, which connects the Russian Federation and the occupied peninsula and is used by the army of the aggressor countries, is apparently going to be carried out using a Dassault Rafale fighter.

Reaction of the Kremlin authorities

Senator of the Federation Council Kostiantyn Kosachov, after the "decoding" of intercepted conversations announced by propagandists, said that the German government is obliged to give a comprehensive answer about the discussion of plans to attack the Crimean bridge. 

The spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Maria Zakharova, hysterically announced that the hybrid war against Russia, launched by the West, is in full swing, as the German military, in conversations about the attack on the Crimean bridge, allegedly openly admits that they are "waging a war."

She also stated that "modern German leadership refers to the experience of the Third Reich" in which the Luftwaffe was created.

The Kremlin's most odious mouthpiece, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Dmytro Medvedev, announced that the appeal of the Great Patriotic War "Death to the German-fascist occupiers" is "relevant again".

What is actually happening

On February 22, the German Bundestag adopted a government recommendation to provide Ukraine with long-range heavy weapons, including Taurus missiles.

The federal government of Germany reported that Scholz will make a statement regarding the possible transfer of Taurus missiles to Ukraine at the "appropriate time" and "at the appropriate opportunity."

The expert of the German Council on International Relations (DGAP), Dr. Stefan Meister, explained Germany's non-supply of missiles by the fact that Scholz is afraid of such a decision, because he is reacting to the mood in German society.

In Germany, 49% of citizens oppose the provision of long-range Taurus missiles to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

On Thursday, February 29, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that German Taurus long-range missiles, if "improperly used", could hit specific targets in Moscow, so Germany does not dare to hand them over to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

"We would have to participate [in fighting in Ukraine] to be able to do that.

I think it's impossible," the German chancellor said. By doing so, he reiterated that German soldiers would not be involved in the use of Taurus weapons for programming targets.

It will be recalled that earlier the Minister of Defense of Germany Boris Pistorius said that he was "tired" of the discussions surrounding the supply of Taurus long-range missiles to Ukraine.
