Russia Threatens To Claim Alaska If US Continues To Seize Russian Resources

    Vyacheslav Volodin, the head of the Russian State Duma, issued a warning that if the US continued to seize Russian resources overseas, Russia might demand the return of Alaska.

    “Decency is not a weakness. We always have something a response. Let America always remember that there is part of its territory, Alaska. When they start trying to dispose of our resources abroad, before doing so, let them think that we also have something to claim back,” said Volodin.

    The politician from Russia mentioned his prior warning to disavow a maritime agreement between Norway and Russia when some cargoes were prevented from passing through Norwegian waters, claiming that Norway afterwards permitted the shipments to pass.

    “Imagine if we also instructed [about Alaska] – you look, and America would start supplying fish where it should be.”

    Volodin also emphasized that Russia does not meddle in American issues, claiming that American politicians have been holding Russia responsible for all of the nation’s problems.

    1. The irresistible force is U.S. policy to balkanize Russia, to which President Biden alluded during his time as V.P. The immovable object is Russian policy to have either weak or friendly countries on every border. Those policies are centuries-old and have nothing to do with either President Biden or President Putin.
