Russian nationalists want Alaska back – 150 years after it was sold to the US

Hard-right Russian nationalists are mourning the 150th anniversary of the sale of Alaska to the US, with some calling for the territory to be returned.

Molṑn labé, Ivan.

    Yep, come and take it.

      Tell you what, let the US give it back to the Czar they bought it from. Oh wait, he doesn’t have any descendants seeing as you commie bastards murdered them all? I guess it sucks to be you then.

    Simple solution. Conduct a referendum asking Alaska residents whether they want to be part of the U.S. or Russia.

    Pretty sure I know what the outcome would be.

    Right, and it was short sighted of France to sell the Louisiana Purchase for 3 cents an acre.

      I’ll bet the Algonquins would be happy to take back Manhattan for $24.

    Maybe the Russians and Spain/Mexico will get into a shooting war over who owns Vancouver Island?

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    They have been making this claim off and on for the last twenty-years.
    Like Mexico, they are full of crap.

    The Alaskan people must be freed from the Anchorage Nazi-Jewish-Homosexual Junta!

    Would they settle for California? It would be a win win situation. Well, except for Hollywood, its already owned by China.

    • Dana Garcia

      Russian settlements went as far south as northern California in the 1800s, which is why there is a Russian River in those parts.

    I have reached the point where I would like to get them to take Canada instead; it could only improve the situation we find ourselves in. Of course at my age I am not sure I want to learn yet another language, so perhaps we could get Trump to invade and annex us.

    I’ll wait till Nancy Pelosi blames Trump

    Alaska would be Canada today if not for the usual butt headed gov’t in Ottawa that could not think about anything west of the Ottawa River.
