Over the past few years the Ukrainian military has been developing in leaps and bounds. With the ongoing conflict in the region, they have discovered a brand new way to get people to enlist. Take a look for yourself.
Now, I can only speak for myself when I say this, but I am extremely motivated by this video. It has just about everything a great mashup needs. Cool guy factor, check. Explosions, check. Intense combat and training footage, check.
Now let’s compare this to an older Ukrainian Army promotional video, and see if we can spot the differences.
Well, now that we’ve seen both, I think we can see the evolution of their military, and it’s mindset. The first video is raw, and edited to glorify the warrior class. It doesn’t try to give you a rose garden, but at the same time it shows you how awesome you can be by joining their ranks.
The second, well it tries to sell contractual service in their military, with a classic American recruiting tactic. “Chicks dig a man in uniform dude!”
