The German parliament has rejected a proposal to dispatch Taurus missiles to Ukraine.


A motion from the opposition to send Ukraine Taurus cruise missiles was rejected by the German parliament.

Olaf Scholz, the chancellor of Germany, has stopped the export of German-made missiles to Ukraine due to concerns that the long-range weaponry would be used to launch strikes within Russia and possibly worsen the situation.

Just 182 votes were cast in favor of the proposal, which was proposed by the center-right CDU/CSU bloc, and 480 were against it, falling well short of a majority.

Friedrich Merz of the CDU/CSU had pleaded with Scholz’s allies to support the resolution and defy the chancellor.

“Ukraine is still not receiving all the material it urgently needs to effectively fend off the Russian war of aggression,” he stated.
