Scholz said that his decision had not changed when asked by a journalist about the possibility of supplying long-range Taurus missiles to Ukraine.

He said that Germany and Britain "stand shoulder to shoulder with Ukraine" and provide the most aid of any European country.

"We will support Ukraine in every possible way so that it can resist Russian aggression. Germany and the United Kingdom are the countries in Europe that provide the most aid. And we will continue to do so. We will continue to work closely together, especially in training Ukrainian soldiers, and we will strengthen the base of the Ukrainian defense industry," the German Chancellor said.

The official stated that since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Germany has allocated more than €28 billion in aid to Ukraine.
