In a newly edited clip, Ukraine thanks them for the weapons they have supplied. This includes various tank models.
Ukraine knows how to attract attention. This is particularly evident in the latest video from the Department of Defense. The Ukrainians thanked Germany for the tanks and military support with the almost epic Edeka commercial “Supergeil”, accompanied by the song of the same name. And it’s going viral. The video already has over 500,000 views.
In the 43-second clip that the ministry published on Twitter on Wednesday, Friedrich Liechtenstein (66), a cult Berliner, also appears. The individual sequences are occasionally interrupted by words like “Super Cheetah”, “Super Iris” or “Super Defense”. They refer to the weapons and defense systems that Germany made available to the Ukrainians.
But the Ukrainians really want to have a tank and that’s why they advertise in the short clip. They ask for a Leopard tank. This is also shown briefly in the clip, followed by the “Super Please” fade-in. At the end of the video, a “Thank you Germany” appears.
Cult Berliners clueless
However, cult Berliner Liechtenstein knew nothing about it, as his management tells the Tagesschau. Cooperation with the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense was “not agreed”. Whether action should be taken against the use is not yet clear at this point in time.
The arms deliveries from Germany are controversial, and the federal government hesitated for a long time. In the meantime, it has provided thirty anti-aircraft tanks, Gepard, ten Bergepanzer 2 and an Iris-T SLM air defense system, among other things. The government has so far refused to supply Leopard battle tanks and Marder infantry fighting vehicles. The reason given is that no other partner would provide Ukraine with such modern Western tanks.
The propaganda master is called Ukraine
Ukraine seems to be becoming the master of propaganda. While Russian President Vladimir Putin (70) was ahead with his lies, misrepresentations and, above all, his manipulation at the beginning of the Ukraine war, the funny, albeit controversial, propaganda clips are now gaining sympathy among many.
Among other things, Putin imposed censorship on the Russian media, including on Twitter and YouTube. There are also special propaganda classes in schools about “Russia’s charitable operations in Ukraine.”
