Russia obtained a call from German officers discussing a hypothetical export of Taurus cruise missiles to Ukraine.

Axar.az reports that with reference to Politicio that Russia used the leak of a confidential call between top German military officers as part of an "information war" to destabilize the country, Germany's Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said Sunday.

The 38-minute recording first emerged on Friday, published by Russia's state media RT and later confirmed by the German government. In it, four senior Bundeswehr officers, reportedly including Air Force Chief Ingo Gerhartz and Brigadier General Frank Grafe, discuss the hypothetical export of Taurus cruise missiles to Ukraine and how they could be used to attack Russian infrastructure.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has steadfastly refused to send Kyiv such long-range cruise missiles unlike the British and the French who have sent their alternatives and it's an issue that is splintering the country's governing coalition.

Pistorius said Sunday that the conversation by the officers does not mean a "green light" to send the missiles to Ukraine.

The contents of the leaked call held on the WebEx platform, rather than through the army's secure internal network have raised eyebrows, but Pistorius said it is all part of Moscow's effort to sow division.

"It's a hybrid disinformation attack it's about division, it's about undermining our unity," Pistorius said, adding: "We mustn't fall for Putin."
