Alaska was once Russia too

Alaska was once Russia too

When, and above all, where will Putin end his campaign? It is probably the most common question in the world at the moment. While the Baltic states and Eastern Europe in particular warn that Russian forces will not be satisfied with Ukraine, a survey showed that the Germans favored voluntarily giving up areas in eastern and southern Ukraine. Meanwhile, Russian politicians and talk show guests fantasize about new military objectives. The State Duma now states that Alaska was once a vassal of Russia.

“America should always remember that part of its territory is Alaska,” said the Speaker of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin. “Before they start to act on our resources abroad and decide on it, they should remember that we also have something to take back.” Thus, the Russian politician warns the United States against confiscating or freezing Russian assets abroad. In the course of the Russian invasion, Washington has sanctioned more than 300 members of the State Duma as well as Russian companies in the defense, energy and banking sectors.

The largest country in the United States was part of the Russian Empire. However, in May 1867, Tsar Alexander II sold the remote region of the United States for just over $7 million. Today the value is equivalent to the equivalent of 130 million dollars, which is equivalent to a skyscraper in Manhattan.

Volodin, a member of Russia’s powerful Security Council and a long-term companion to Vladimir Putin, is not the only Russian politician who aspires to Alaska. In March 2022, Oleg Matvechev, a member of parliament and adviser to the Russian president, demanded “compensation for damages caused by sanctions” on Russian state television.

The politician demands “the return of all property of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and present-day Russia that was confiscated in the United States.” In addition to Alaska, Fort Ross in today’s California was also one of the trading centers of the Tsarist Empire in North America.

Speculations about retaking former spheres of influence are more the norm than the exception on Russian television. Chechen parliament speaker Magomed Daudov recently caused a stir when he predicted a march through Berlin. “If Vladimir Putin does not stop us, God willing, we will reach Berlin as well,” the head of the Chechen parliament said, “There is no doubt that we will win.”

A similar statement was made by Apti Alaeddinov, the leader of a Chechen combat unit. “After that we liberate the Donetsk Republic, it is only a matter of time. The next stop is Kyiv and then Warsaw, unless Vladimir Putin orders us to stop.”

At the beginning of May this year, the guests of the Russian talk show simulated a nuclear attack on various European capitals, including Berlin. So it should take 106 seconds for a nuclear missile to hit Berlin. Berlin is increasingly becoming the target of Russian discourse on popular TV shows with Vladimir Solovyov or the program “60 Minutes”. Germany has also been accused of Nazism after acceding to sanctions against Russia and supplying arms to Ukraine.
