U.S., Germany to supply Bradley and Marder infantry fighting vehicles and an additional Patriot battery to Ukraine

In a phone conversation between U.S. President Joe Biden and Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Thursday, the two leaders exchanged their views on the ongoing war of aggression waged by Russia against Ukraine and expressed their common determination to continue to provide the necessary financial, humanitarian, military and diplomatic support to Ukraine for as long as needed, according to their joint press statement following the call.

“To this end, the United States intends to supply Ukraine with Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles, and Germany intends to provide Ukraine with Marder Infantry Fighting Vehicles. Both countries plan to train Ukrainian forces on the respective systems,” the statement reads.

“In light of Russia’s ongoing missile and drone attacks against Ukraine’s critical infrastructure, President Biden and Chancellor Scholz affirmed their intention to further support Ukraine’s urgent requirement for air defense capabilities. In late December, the United States announced its donation of a Patriot air defense missile battery to Ukraine. Germany will join the United States in supplying an additional Patriot air defense battery to Ukraine,” according to the statement.
