President Biden maintained that the United States is "in a situation where the cost of doing—of walking away could be considerably higher than the cost of helping Ukraine maintain its independence."

Although President Volodymyr Zelenskyy requested F-16 fighter jets, President Biden said that "for now," the United States won't be sending any. However, "We're sending him what our seasoned military thinks he needs now. He needs tanks. He needs artillery. He needs air defense, including another HIMARS. There are things he needs now that we're sending him to put him in a position to be able to make gains this spring and this summer going into the fall."

On the same day as the president's interview—which just so happened to be the one-year anniversary of the beginning of Russia's military action against Ukraine—the Department of Defense (DOD) announced $2 billion of "additional security assistance" for Ukraine through the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI).
