One of the largest and most strategically located countries in Europe, Ukraine lies both physically and figuratively at the crossroads of Europe and Russia. It is widely seen as a test case for post-Soviet reform with implications across the Black Sea region. As an energy transit state, it is a critical player in economic and security considerations for the NATO alliance.

Ian Brzezinski will discuss the current situation in Ukraine and what it means for transatlantic security. 

Brzezinski is a resident senior fellow with the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security and is on the Atlantic Council's Strategic Advisors Group. Previously, he served as deputy assistant secretary of defense for Europe and NATO policy. His responsibilities included NATO expansion and NATO operations in the Balkans, the Mediterranean, Afghanistan and Iraq. Brzezinski served for seven years on Capitol Hill, where he drafted and implemented legislative initiatives and strategies concerning U.S. interests in Europe, Russia, the Caucasus and Central Asia. Brzezinski was a principal at Booz Allen Hamilton, providing policy and technical support to U.S. combatant commands and foreign clients.
