Federal Assembly of Russia member Oleg Matveychev appeared on Russian state television on Sunday and demanded the United States hand over Alaska, as well as parts of California and Hawaii, as reparations for placing sanctions on Russia.
If I didn't know any better, I'd think that was an Onion article!
“We should be thinking about reparations from the damage that was caused by the sanctions and the war itself, because that too costs money and we should get it back,” the lawmaker said. “The return of all Russian properties, those of the Russian empire, the Soviet Union and current Russia, which has been seized in the United States, and so on."
When asked if he was specifically talking about Alaska and the former Russian Settlement at Fort Ross, California, he replied that they both “belong to [Russia].”
“That was my next point. As well as the Antarctic,” Matveychev added. “We discovered it, so it belongs to us.”
Putin's spin doc Russian parliament member Oleg Matveychev demands reparations from US over sanctions: Russia wants Alaska back, the return of Fort Ross California in Sonoma County and part of Hawaii. This is not a joke. Putin goes global https://t.co/Pc0awz12V5 via @nypost

American Military News reports:
While Russia first settled in Alaska in 1784 with a colony called Three Saints Bay, the U.S. bought Alaska in 1867 during President Andrew Johnson’s administration for $7.2 million.
A Russian-American company also established Fort Ross outside modern-day San Francisco in 1812, but they later sold the settlement to private individuals in 1841.
The demands follow Russia’s latest move to sanction President Joe Biden and a number of other Americans, including his son Hunter Biden. Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the new Russian sanctions are in retaliation to the sanctions the U.S. imposed against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine.
Think about it, Alaska is the largest state, which also has massive untapped oil reserves. If Putin takes Ukraine, what’s to say he doesn’t want Alaska back?
