The goal of the United States when it comes to Ukraine is clear and straightforward, President Biden wrote in an op-ed published Wednesday in The New York Times.

"We want to see a democratic, independent, sovereign, and prosperous Ukraine with the means to deter and defend itself against further aggression," Biden said. He agrees with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who has said the war will "only definitively end through diplomacy," and that's why the U.S. has "moved quickly to send Ukraine a significant amount of weaponry and ammunition so it can fight on the battlefield and be in the strongest possible position at the negotiation table."
