Germany investigates after a recording of its officers discussing aid to Ukraine is leaked in Russia

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — German authorities say they are investigating after an audio recording was published in Russia in which German military officers purportedly discussed support for Ukraine, including the potential use of Taurus long-range cruise missiles. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called it a “very serious matter.” Scholz earlier said he remains reluctant to send Taurus missiles to Ukraine, pointing to a risk of Germany becoming directly involved in the war. But in the purported recording, German officers discuss the possibility of the missiles being used in Ukraine. The German news agency dpa reported that the Ministry of Defense said it was investigating whether communications within the air force were intercepted by Russia.
