German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock gave Ukraine no hope of a quick decision by the German government on a delivery of Taurus cruise missiles. "We are more than aware of the situation," the minister said after talks with her Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba. "At the same time, it is not sufficient to just promise things," she said. As with the Iris-T air defence system and other German arms deliveries, "all questions must first be clarified." Kuleba reacted in no uncertain terms to the German government's continued hesitation regarding Kyiv's request for the long-range cruise missiles, sought in order to hit targets behind the large Russian minefields. "I don't understand why we are wasting time," the diplomat said. Ukrainian soldiers and civilians were being killed because of the hesitation, he said. "There is not a single objective argument that speaks against it."
