Declare and grep a variable via ssh/remote/loop

If I am running a bash command, and some awk getting the ethernet adapter on the local machine. It works fine. But if I will run it from the remote, it is EMPTY on echo and throwing error in grep.
Thank you

This work perfectly fine
$ f=`/sbin/ip a|grep 127.127 | awk '{print $NF }' ` ; ip a| grep $f

6: br0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN
    inet brd scope host br0

$ f=`/sbin/ip a|grep 127.127 | awk '{print $NF }' ` ; ip a| grep $f|grep scope
    inet brd scope host br0

$ f=`/sbin/ip a|grep 127.127 | awk '{print $NF }' ` ; ip a| grep $f|grep scope
    inet brd scope host br0

Now from my remote machine:
$ for i in REMOTEserver; do  ssh $i " f=`/sbin/ip a|grep 127.127 | awk '{print $NF }' ` ; echo $f "  ; done

$ for i in REMOTEserver; do  ssh $i " f=`/sbin/ip a|grep 127.127 | awk '{print $NF }' ` ; echo \$f "  ; done

$ for i in REMOTEserver; do  ssh $i " f=`/sbin/ip a|grep 127.127 | awk '{print $NF }' ` ; echo $f "  ; done

$ for i in REMOTEserver; do  ssh $i " f=`/sbin/ip a|grep 127.127 | awk '{print $NF }' ` ; ip a|grep  $f "  ; done
bash: ip: command not found
Usage: grep [OPTION]... PATTERN [FILE]...
Try 'grep --help' for more information.

for i in `my remote servers|sort`; do echo -n $i "";ssh $i " f=\`/sbin/ip a|egrep '127.127|128.128' |head -1| awk '{print \$NF }' \` ; echo \$f    "  ; done

I added \ on "`", without it, I can't declare a variable to a remote server.
Thank you
