Russia says ‘can claim back Alaska’ in response to US seizure of assets

No Comments

The chairman of the Russian State Duma says Russia can “claim back” Alaska if the United States continues to freeze Russian assets abroad, more than 150 years after the US purchased the exclave from Russia.

Vyacheslav Volodin said on Wednesday that when attempting to seize Russian assets, US officials should remember that Alaska is “a part of [Russian] territory” that Moscow can “claim back.”
