Soldiers’ Secret Telephone Conversations Leaked Germany Angry With Russia

Soldiers’ Secret Telephone Conversations Leaked Germany Angry With Russia. Germany on the week of March 3, 2024, accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of trying to divide by leaking the results of secret wiretaps of German soldiers’ conversations about the Ukraine war.

The 38-minute recording circulated online on Friday 1 March 2024 evening, on Russian social media. The people on the other end of the phone can be heard discussing the possible use of the Taurus missile. made in Germany, and its potential impact.

The discussions also covered the use of long-range missiles that France and Britain provided to Ukraine. “It’s about using recordings to disrupt and unsettle us.” Said German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius.

Quoted from the AFP news agency, he added that he hoped Putin would not succeed. “This is part of Putin’s information war.” he said. Pistorius has always claimed not to know of any other leaks from the military.

He will wait for the results of the military investigation into the case to decide what action to take. Ukraine has long asked Germany to send Taurus missiles that can reach targets up to 500 km away. But German Chancellor Olaf Scholz rejected it. Because it is worried that it will lead to increased conflict with Russia, which has nuclear weapons.

Meanwhile, France and Britain supplied SCALP or Strom Shadow missiles to Kyiv. Both have a range of around 250 km. According to Scholz, Germany cannot justify the actions of Britain and France in sending long-range missiles to Ukraine, nor does it support the deployment of these weapons systems.

The UK denies being directly involved in the operation of the Storm Shadow missile. “Ukraine’s use of Storm Shadow and its targeting process is a matter for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.” a British Ministry of Defense spokesman told AFP
