The head of the permanent delegation of the Verkhovna Rada to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Yehor Chernev said that he had received information from his German colleagues about the agreement of key parliamentary factions of the Bundestag to transfer long-range Taurus missiles to Ukraine.
Chernev wrote about this on his Facebook page, reports “European Truth”.
< p>"My friends from the Bundestag have just informed me that the key parliamentary factions have reached a consensus on the transfer of Taurus long-range missiles to Ukraine, – noted Chernev.
These missiles hit 500 kilometers and are capable of covering all occupied territories, including the southern coast of Crimea, he added.
"For a long time, we worked with German parliamentarians to form a support group, and now, finally, the ice has broken", – emphasized the people's deputy.
He added that he was waiting for an official decision from Germany.
At the end of May, Ukraine asked the German government to provide Taurus cruise missiles with a range of up to 500 kilometers. However, since then, it has been constantly refused, despite the decision of Britain and France to supply long-range missiles.
The day before, calls were finally heard from the ruling Social Democratic Party of Germany to provide Ukraine with Taurus missiles.
