Additionally, according to the website tagesspiegel.de, Russia will attack Alaska.

In Russia, the rhetoric against the West continues to intensify. Even a US state is now being used for propaganda purposes.

Several billboards with the slogan “Alaska is ours!” have reportedly appeared in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk. Most recently, Putin confidant and Russian parliamentary leader Vyacheslav Volodin had suggested that Russia could “take back Alaska,” the U.S. news portal Newsweek reported.

Russia could retaliate for economic sanctions imposed over its war of aggression on Ukraine by recapturing Alaska, he said. “America should always remember that there is a piece of territory, which is Alaska,” Volodin said during a session of the Russian parliament on Wednesday, The Moscow Times reported.

Before the United States “tries to manage our resources abroad, it should remember that we also have something to reclaim.”

Volodin’s deputy, Pyotr Tolstoy, reportedly proposed a “referendum” in which Alaskan residents would vote on joining Russia. Commenting on the Russian politicians’ words on Twitter, Alaska Republican Governor Mike Dunleavy said, “To the Russian politicians who think they can take back Alaska: Good luck.”

“They’ve gone completely mad,” Ian Garner, a Russian media observer, commented on the action on Twitter, sharing a photo of one of the billboards.

Meanwhile, guesswork is ongoing in Krasnoyarsk about the creator of the billboards, local news portal “NGS24” reports. The signs do not appear to have been put up by any official party. Rather, a local trailer manufacturer called “Alaska” is responsible for the boards, the report says. The head of the Russian company is “very patriotic,” the portal quotes an employee as saying.
