It is far from Russia's European front door but the back door from Siberia only requires you to cross the Bering Strait to reach the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. The easternmost point of Russia is only 2.4 miles from the westernmost point in Alaska.
Nearly 40 miles
About 2 miles
100 million miles
it is almost like 225 miles
If you accept Islands, Russia is only two miles from Alaska (the distance between Big Diomede Island (Russia), and Little Diomede Island (Alaska). Otherwise, the distance mainland-to-mainland from Alaska to Russia is about 55 miles.
The eastern tip of Russia and the western tip of Alaska are about 80 km apart.
No, Russia's claim was unchallenged. Only the location of how far east the border should be drawn was questioned.
They share a common Maritime border. But the closest land distance would be 2.4 miles from Little Diomede Island in Alaska to Big Diomede Island in Russia.
No. But Russia owned Alaska.
That common maritime border lies halfway between Little Diomomde Island Alaska and Big Diomonde Island 2.4 miles away. Therefore the border between Alaska and Russia is 1.2 miles from each island.
The Bering Strait divides Russia from Alaska
