Moscow’s annexation of Crimea was condemned worldwide, but some people in Alaska apparently are yearning for the days when they, too, were part of Mother Russia.

A petition on the White House website created by “S.V.” of Anchorage is calling on Alaskans and others to "vote" for Alaska to secede from the U.S. and become a part of Russia.

Unlike Ukraine, no one is a live from when the territory was Russian.

I'm not Sourdough, but Russian culture in AK is weak.

nothing to be concerned about.

Ain't gonna happen, even if every single Alaskan resident gets behind it. That's just how the US of A rolls.

I wouldn't mind having the Yukon Territory join up with Alaska. They've got like mined people over there as well as some excellent oilfields and gold deposits.

Even better...how about Yukon, Northwest, and Nunavut Territories leave Canada, Alaska leaves the lower 48 and we all form our own country?

Although Hogfamily's idea sounds better. As long as us Lower 48ers can go too.
