The soldiers belong to a unit from Munster in Lower Saxony. According to the Bundeswehr, the military police carried out investigations into the course of the accident and the possible causes, which were initially unclear.

In “Hart aber fair” a spokeswoman for the “Last Generation” fabulates about a “social council” whose measures would actually be implemented. Under the guise of climate protection, a kind of eco-socialism is being propagated here. That is anti-democratic and misplaced.
