German MP calls for approving Ukraine's request for long-range Taurus missiles

    WORLD  31 May 2023 - 18:10

    Alexander Müller, a defence expert and Bundestag member from the Free Democratic Party, has said that Germany should approve Ukraine's request to supply long-range cruise missiles Taurus.

    "Ukraine still needs our solidarity in defence against the aggressor," Müller said in an interview with Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland.

    According to him, the decisive factor in this issue is the need on the Ukrainian side and the availability of appropriate supplies on the German side.

    "If both are weighed and justified, there is nothing to object to sending so that Ukraine can continue to defend itself against a Russian attack that violates international law," the deputy added.

    The Taurus KEPD 350 long-range subsonic cruise missile is designed to hit protected targets with high precision at a range of up to 500 km. The missile weighs 1,400 kg and is 5 meters long and was developed by Taurus Systems GmbH, a joint venture between MBDA Deutschland and Swedish company Saab Bofors Dynamics AB.
