Joint statement by Biden and Schultz
United State Will deliver Bradley infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine, and Germany Marder cars the two governments announced in a joint statement after a meeting between President Joe Biden and Chancellor Olaf Schultz on Thursday. In addition, Berlin will hand over another battery of the Patriot air defense system to Ukraine. In December, the United States announced the transfer of such a battery.
Ukraine has long sought extradition of both the Bradleys and Marders. In March last year she made an offer to buy old Marders from Germany, repeating her offers many times later.

The total value of military equipment that Washington has pledged to donate since the Russian invasion in February has reached $21.2 billion so far. US aid included: More than two thousand different types of vehicles.
