MOSCOW, March 1. /TASS/. RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan has published the audio recording where high-ranking German military officers discuss asking UK for help in planning an attack on the Crimean bridge with Taurus missiles.

Simonyan earlier posted a transcript of the audio to her page on the VK social network. It said German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius ordered a study of the issue of supplying long-range Taurus missiles to Ukraine. Also, the officers (chief of the Operations and Exercise Department at the Air Force Command, Frank Graefe; Air Force Inspector Ingo Gerhartz; and two staff at the air operations center of the Space Command) said 100 such missiles could be transferred in two tranches of 50, and discussed how to deliver and use the missiles.

"As promised, I am publishing the audio of a conversation between Bundeswehr officers as they discuss how they will bomb the Crimean bridge," Simonyan said on Telegram in a caption to the recording.

About the recording

Simonyan earlier said that on the day when German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that NATO did not and would not participate in the Ukrainian conflict, high-ranking German officers discussed the possibility of attacking the Crimean bridge without repercussions for the German authorities. She said she had an audio recording confirming the conversation among the officers.

Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that the Kremlin does not yet have information about the content of the recording. State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said the lower house of the Russian parliament will discuss the issue at the next session.
