The Chairman of the State Duma hinted that the state should belong to the Russian Federation.
The territory of Alaska is part of the United States of America . Therefore, the state needs to remember that Russia can regain this state.
According to Russian media, such threats in a slightly veiled form were made by the Chairman of the State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, during the plenary session.
“Deceit is not a weakness, we always have something to answer. Let America always remember that there is a part of the territory there – Alaska. That’s when they start trying to dispose of our resources, before doing this, let them think that we also have something to return,” Volodin said.
At the end of April, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said that the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine “will require huge funds.” And at least some of them will have to be taken from Russia.
Recall that this is not the first time that officials from the Russian Federation have threatened other states with a military invasion. For example, at the end of June, the aggressor country called the ban on the transit of goods to the Kaliningrad region a violation of its sovereignty by Lithuania. Russia promised to solve the problem “by any means.”
