ST. LOUIS — A military expert from the Metro East shared his thoughts on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its impact on Sunday.

William Enyart has more than 35 years of experience in military relations, is a retired major general in the U.S. Army, and is a former U.S. congressman representing the Metro East and southern Illinois. He served in the 113th Congress.

"In terms of what's happening today in Ukraine, it's an incredibly complex and dynamic system," he said.

Enyart served in Ukraine having commanded and observed its military.

“Seeing how far they have come from leaving the Soviet-dominated training they had had and seeing whether they were ready to move into a NATO role," he said.

Ukraine and its citizens have been bombarded by Russian attacks for the last three days.
