Palazzo visits Purvis, comments on Russia

PURVIS, MS (WDAM) - United States Congressman Steven Palazzo [R - MS 4] greeted law enforcement officials during the monthly first Friday luncheon in Purvis.

He made comments to reporters about the recent unrest in Russia and the Ukraine.

"I think we sent mixed signals to the world where, you know, thugs pretty much do what they want...we send out warnings but we don't always back them up," said Palazzo.

He added that he believes cutting the national defense deters allies from coming to a solution.
