Russia is not communist, the old soviet union was. That clearly did not work out for them so its doubtful they are going back to that. There would never be an invasion, likely the USA would sell it to pay debts to China.

Very good... I did see that a lot of the school in Anchorage offer Russian language classes - might want to check and see if there are any available for adults to take. If not, one of the colleges should have some. If anything so you can practice speaking to someone first.

Yea that is the one gap that I have right now, there was one guy I met in Wasilla who said he would practice with me but I have not seen him since last summer. There are alot of Russian speakers at my work so I just need to find someone here.

And of course when you go over to the Island and find a Russian girlfriend, for the first few months you probably won't be doing much talking anyways.
