This Sunday on GPS: Fareed will be speaking live to former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski to discuss the latest developments in Ukraine, and what we should expect next.

OK, so what’s happening in Ukraine today?

A lot. To be brief, Ukraine’s ousted President sounded pretty defiant talking to reporters from Russia. He fled Ukraine days ago but insisted that he remained the legitimate elected leader and that he would not give up. In Crimea, a pro-Russian region of southern Ukraine, armed men in military uniforms alarmed Ukrainian officials by showing up suddenly outside two airports in the region.

The uproar earlier this month over U.S. diplomat Victoria Nuland’s profane remarkabout how the European Union is handling the Ukraine crisis shouldn’t distract from a simple fact – frustration with U.S. allies is often part and parcel of the job. Indeed, years ago, when I was a National Security Council staffer, we used to quip that the only thing worse than not consulting with Japan was…consulting with Japan. So it should be little surprise that frustration is bubbling to the surface now.
