German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, at the Munich Security Conference, avoided answering questions about the possible supply of Taurus missiles to Ukraine. However, he emphasized that Germany will continue to support Ukraine.

The Chancellor emphasized that "Germany is the country that is spending the most on defense in Europe to support Ukraine".

"There are all the things in it that are necessary for defending Ukraine. It's absolutely important we make the right decisions in the scenario we are in now. We have to increase the production of munition and weapons. We have to make it feasible that all the maintenance could be done with the weapons that are at war. We are doing all these things and deciding what is the right thing to do step by step," said Scholz.

However, the Chancellor of Germany avoided directly answering the question of supplying Taurus missiles.

"We will do enough and we will be strong in supporting Ukraine," he said.
