A purportedly leaked audio that would show German general officers discussing the supply of cruise missiles to Ukraine for use in the war against Russia, as well as the potential of these weapons to destroy a bridge in Crimea, revealed by Russia Today (RT ), a According to media reports, the government left the Kremlin in anger.

In the excerpt presented, military members of the High Command of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundeswehr) are said to have spoken with colleagues from the Air Force about the hypothesis that the Taurus missiles would be handed over to the Kiev government and whether these artifacts would be such artifacts capable of rendering unusable the structure of the road that connects the city of Kerch on the Crimean Peninsula with Russian territory. The authenticity and full content of the message have not yet been confirmed by any media company.

Former Prime Minister and former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, currently Vice President of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, who remains one of the most influential figures and Vladimir Putin's closest confidant, took to “X” (formerly Twitter) to comment on the episode and left an angry message to the Germans.

“In a telephone conversation between Bundeswehr officers about planned attacks on our country: Our historical enemies, the Germans, have once again become our archenemies. Just look at how thoroughly and in detail the Germans discuss attacks with longrange missiles on the territory of Russia, choosing targets and the most sensible methods to inflict harm on our Fatherland and our people. And they do this without ignoring the misleading rhetoric about Germany's noninvolvement in the conflict. Could anyone have imagined this not so long ago? And how do you respond diplomatically? I don't know… But I know one thing: the appeal of the Second World War is relevant once again: DEATH TO THE FASCISTS! “Medvedev wrote.

Russian authorities reported on Saturday morning that the Kremlin was discussing a forceful request for satisfaction from the government of Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who has not yet commented on the alleged leak, although senior members of the German government have said privately that the audios do indeed appear to be to come from highranking members of the Bundeswehr.

The chairman of the parliamentary control committee of the German Bundestag, Konstantin von Notz, said in an interview with the RND news agency (Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland) that “if this story is true,” the two countries are facing a “most problematic incident,” which signals that espionage of this kind by Moscow, the interception of communications from the Bundeswehr General Staff, will not be tolerated.

Officially, Germany has not directly delivered its Taurus cruise missiles or other military equipment to Ukraine. The country, as the richest country in the European Union, has actively promoted efforts to raise funds for the maintenance of Kiev's troops, but has recently rejected any possibility of military action on its part or by NATO against Russian troops on Ukrainian territory, mentioned in a disastrous and apparently spontaneous speech by French President Emmanuel Macron.
