Germany intends to supply the Ukrainian armed forces with several dozen examples of the Marder infantry fighting vehicle, which was developed for the Bundeswehr more than 50 years ago. The USA is sending tanks of the Bradley type. Both countries will also train Ukrainian forces in use of the tanks.
In the phone call, Scholz and Biden reaffirmed “their unwavering solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in the face of Russia’s aggression”. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy thanked both of them. “We will get a Patriot system and powerful armoured technology, this is really a great victory for our state,” he said in his video address on Friday night.
