By retaking Alaska, Russia could retaliate against economic sanctions imposed over the war of aggression against Ukraine. “America should always remember that there is one piece of territory, namely Alaska,” Volodin said during a session of Russia’s parliament on Wednesday, the Moscow Times reports.

Before the United States “try to manage our resources abroad, they should remember that we too have something they can reclaim.”

Volodin’s deputy, Pyotr Tolstoy, has reportedly proposed a “referendum” in which Alaskans should vote on joining Russia. Responding to the Russian politicians’ words on Twitter, Republican Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy said: “To the Russian politicians who believe they can take back Alaska: good luck.”
