This week, Russian officials issued a warning that, as retaliation for Biden’s continued sanctions related to the invasion of Ukraine, Russia might attempt to retake Alaska from the United States.
The State Duma’s speaker, Vyacheslav Volodin, issued a warning to the United States on Wednesday during a parliamentary meeting in Moscow, urging it to exercise caution before seizing or freezing Russian assets abroad. The top Russian official reminded the United States that Alaska was once part of Russia and that the country might want to reclaim the territory.
According to a Ukrainian news source, Volodin said, “Let America always remember; there is a part of Russian territory: Alaska.”
Therefore, he said, “U.S. lawmakers should be aware that we also have something to claim back when they attempt to appropriate our assets abroad.”

Volodin’s remarks were followed by yet another threat from Pyotr Tolstoy, another of Putin’s top officials, who suggested that Russia hold a “referendum” in Alaska.
In light of the ongoing sanctions and political pressure from the United States, this was not the only threat made by Russia.
The United States may incur the “wrath of God” if it cooperates with international efforts to set up a tribunal to look into Russian war crimes in Ukraine, according to Dmitry Medvedev, the former prime minister of Russia.
“The United States and its worthless stooges should keep in mind the Bible’s warning: Do not judge and you shall not be judged. in order to prevent the coming of the great day of His wrath to their house one day, Medvedev said.
History states that Russia’s first settlement in Alaska was founded in 1784. The vast northern territory was purchased by the United States from Russia in 1867 for $7.2 million.
