Information leakage from Germany is controlled: military expert on long-range weapons supply

Military expert Dmytro Sniehyrov says that the so-called intercepted conversation coincides with Macron's statements about the possibility of sending a military contingent to Ukraine

He said this on Espreso TV.

"Our partners have already made a decision to provide us with long-range weapons. As for the leaked conversation, there is no need to sprinkle ashes on your head, because it was a controlled leak of information by the German intelligence services, which was intended to show the intentions of not only Germany but also the NATO bloc regarding possible actions of the Alliance in deterring Russian aggression, both on the borders with NATO and in Ukraine. The so-called intercepted conversation coincides with Macron's statements about the possibility of France sending a military contingent, with Finland's statements that the country is not against using its weapons to strike at the territory of the Russian Federation," Sniehyrov explained.

According to the military expert, there are tectonic fractures in the mindset of the NATO bloc.

"Stoltenberg's statement that NATO troops will not be in Ukraine, but if a military contingent from a separate country with which Ukraine has bilateral agreements enters the territory of our country, there will be no questions. Therefore, we can say that this is a controlled leak of information from the German side. Moreover, Germany has confirmed the authenticity of these conversations," he emphasized.

The military expert added that Ukraine will receive 155 mm caliber shells in the coming weeks.

"France has become another country to support the Czech initiative to provide Ukraine with 800,000 shells. In addition, Denmark, the Netherlands and a number of other countries have allocated money. It is worth noting that, according to the Czech government, the shells will be delivered to the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the coming weeks. Therefore, the situation with the ammunition shortage will change for the better. The shells will be of 155 mm caliber," he noted.

  • The intercepted audio recording, in which Bundeswehr officers discussed strikes on the Crimean bridge with Taurus missiles, was published on March 1 by RT propagandist Margarita Simonyan. On March 2, the German Defense Ministry acknowledged the interception of the conversation, but did not comment on its content.
  • The Russian Foreign Ministry, commenting on the audio recording, said that the "denazification" of Germany was "incomplete.
  • German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said that the leaked conversation between German officers about Taurus missiles was due to an "insecure connection" - one of the interlocutors used a mobile network or hotel Wi-Fi.
