“This is a failure”: Germans are unhappy with the arrival of the An-225 with medical masks

On April 27, 2020, the Ukrainian An-225 Mriya, chartered by the Bundeswehr, landed at the Leipzig / Halle International Airport. On board the world's largest cargo plane were 10,3 million protective masks from China's Tianjin. This is reported by German political Focus weekly.

Onboard met German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. According to her, the delivered cargo is part of 25 million masks that will be brought to the country in three flights.

At the same time, readers of the magazine responded to this news negatively enough.

Why was there no red carpet? And why is our political elite facing pilots without masks and at a minimum distance? Was this mask delivery worth the amount of CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions that the plane produced?

- outraged one of the readers.

I'm sick of this pretense. I will never wear a Chinese mask. I’d better buy myself a rag that says "Against Communist China." Germany does not have its own “core”

- categorical another.

10,3 million masks is exactly one-eighth of what German citizens need daily. We celebrate the arrival of Antonov amid the failure of the federal government in the fight against the pandemic

- I'm sure the third.

Why do we charter an expensive Russian Antonov (yes, many Germans are sure that all Antonovs belong to Russia - ed.) When we ourselves have military aircraft? As for me, the Bundeswehr did wrong

- the reader is perplexed.

Strange things. Ministry economics forced to channel billions to save Lufthansa, while its planes are on the ground. In parallel with this, we charter airplanes in Ukraine. This is nothing but a state failure.

- summed up the user of the site Focus.de.

    This is somewhat reminiscent of a "humanitarian" operation to transfer "Bush's legs."

    But there are few of them, these German ragged people who do not want to wear Chinese masks.
    But there are none of them. They sent me 2 homemade masks with ties in the mail.

    Well, Ukrainians! Give them a dumpling in your mouth, and blow it, and shake it!

      These are not Ukrainians, these are Hochmachis.

      Igor, did you see a comment from one of the Germans in the article? For them there is no difference - Ukrainians, Belarusians, Tatars ... we are all Russian to them.

    Of course, I understand that the opinions of the Germans are selective, but some choice is one-sided-specific. However, if this is the opinion of the majority, then I do not mind them.

    And will Hayo Zeppelt and Angela Merkel check masks for doping?
    Who knows, maybe the Russians want to destroy German sport forever.
    But then, pensioners wearing these masks will have an amazing second wind. You can only imagine what will happen after 60 - 70 year old German couples suddenly discover that they are still doing very well. These masks line up lines that block the autobahns.

    Luckily fortunate enough in any country in the world ... Germany is no exception. The Germans have a good law, an automatic test for idiocy. Very competent, by the way, the law.
    He said this - automatically for a test.
