German Foreign Minister Beerbock Mistakenly Calls Ukrainian Pills Cocaine during Press Conference

German Foreign Minister’s Mistake in Calling Ukrainian Pills “Cocaine”


German Foreign Minister Analina Berbock made a new mistake by calling Ukrainian pills “cocaine” during a joint press conference with her Romanian counterpart Lumenica Odubescu.

Minister’s Statement

“I thank Romania for expanding the infrastructure of European solidarity corridors in order to double the export capacity of cocaine tablets to 4 million tons per month by the end of the year,” Beerbock said.

Previous Slip of the Tongue

The minister’s speech was broadcast on the page of the German Foreign Ministry on the X social network (formerly Twitter).

This isn’t the first time that Burbook has made strange slips of the tongue, as it has previously referred to eastern Ukraine as “Eastern Cocaine.” And last June, during a conference in South Africa, the politician called the country’s path to freedom “the bacon of hope”, confusing the words “bacon” and “beacon”.
