Scholz: We’ll do everything in our power to prevent a war between Russia and NATO


German Chancellor Olaf Scholz renewed his ruling out the use of German soldiers in Ukraine.

Scholz said in the city of Emmendingen, southwest of Germany, on Tuesday, “There will be no forces from Germany or from NATO on Ukrainian territory,” noting that he had already said this in his speech known as the “Time Shift Speech” (a phrase he gave… Scholz, three days after the outbreak of the Ukraine war, intended to change Germany’s defense policy.

The German Chancellor Olaf Scholz continued his speech, saying that his country will support Ukraine, “but we will do everything in our power – and I, as an advisor, stand with this – in order to ensure that this war doesn’t escalate so that it does not turn into a war between Russia and NATO”.

He noted that this has always been the guiding principle for all decisions.

Scholz also confirmed his refusal to deliver Taurus missiles directed to Ukraine, and explained that the basis for this is the fact that German soldiers shouldn’t participate in the war, and he said that the Taurus system is very long-range and needs, for example, programming.

It’s noteworthy that Taurus missiles are the latest missiles of the German Air Force, and they can hit their targets from great heights and distances, and they can destroy bunkers, for example.

Scholz decided early last October not to initially supply Taurus cruise missiles to Ukraine for fear that these missiles, which have a range of 500 kilometers, would hit Russian territory.

It should be noted that the bulk of the ruling coalition supports supplying Ukraine with this system and criticizes Scholz’s refusal.
