the US bought Alaska From the Russians over 50 years ago for 7.2 million $ , my question is what was Russia doing with Alaska ? , shouldn't

Alaska belong to Canada in the First place ?
They do nothing with it!
It's about power and control

The russians colonized Alaska before there ever was a Canada.

@TheProphet surprised Russia doesn't own what was called Canada later on
TheProphet · M
@FurryFace They never should have sold it. Bad move on their part.

@TheProphet saw that the US made easily over a hundred times what they paid for it since then

Nobody owns land. It’s for everyone.

@FurryFace They are the ones who made up buying land.

@MrBrownstone It belongs to the people who bought it.

Ummm it was 150 yrs. ago and the Russians used Alaska for fishing, lumber and mining. They were there since they discovered it in 1741.
