O. Scholz: “The French and British are in Ukraine and are attacking Russians with cruise missiles”


In a revelation that has ignited a fire within NATO, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, accused of “flagrant misuse of information” admitted (as many suspected) that British and French soldiers are helping the Ukrainian army launch Storm Shadow and SCALP cruise missiles at Russian positions!

Of course this explains why the Ukrainians use these weapons so successfully, since they demonstrate amazing accuracy when launching missile strikes against Russians.

Scholz even used it “revelation”to justify its decision not to send Taurus cruise missiles to Kyiv, since in this case German soldiers would have to be stationed on Ukrainian territory.

Tobias Ellwood, Conservative MP and former head of the UK Defense Committee, said that “Berlin is endangering the lives of British soldiers in Ukraine”reports the Telegraph: “This is a blatant misuse of information, deliberately designed to distract attention from Germany’s reluctance to equip Ukraine with its own long-range missile system. It will undoubtedly be used by Russia.”

The UK is known to provide intelligence on Russian targets, but it is unclear what level of support it provides on the ground to Ukrainian troops launching their missiles. Ellwood’s comments came days after Scholz ruled out supplying Ukraine with long-range Taurus missiles, saying it could lead to direct conflict between Russia and NATO.

“We would like to prevent the war that Russia started against Ukraine from escalating into a war between Russia and NATO” Scholz said in an interview with German news agency dpa on Monday. Scholz argued that supplying missiles to Ukraine would require sending German soldiers to Ukraine to use or deploy them. “German soldiers must not be in any way associated with the potential targets of this system, at any time and in any place,” – he said.

“The Chancellor’s statement about the alleged involvement of France and the UK in the operational use of cruise missiles used in Ukraine is completely irresponsible.”said Norbert Rotgen, a member of the Christian Democrats.

Ukraine has repeatedly asked Germany to provide Taurus cruise missiles, and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said last month that Kyiv needs the weapons “not for attacking Moscow” A “to destroy Russian military infrastructure along the front line on Ukrainian territory.”

With these statements, Olaf Scholz justifies Moscow for the fact that during the recent attacks in Ukraine, French soldiers were killed, and not mercenaries, as Paris assured.

PS The Kremlin’s claims that the operators of the Patriot air defense system are British military is receiving more and more confirmation, which also fits into the statement of the Russian media that exactly the British shot down IL-76 with Ukrainian prisoners of warwho were taken to Belgorod for exchange, despite the warning from the command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Apparently the desire to receive a bonus outweighed all other factors.
