Russia Wants To Annex 3 US States and 2 NATO Nations To Expand Its ‘Empire’

In a provocative statement on Russian state television, political scientist Sergey Mikheyev expressed an expansive vision for Russia that includes annexing parts of the United States and certain European countries, sparking discussions and concerns about the intentions behind such bold claims.

During the broadcast, Mikheyev listed several territories he envisioned as part of a “Russian empire,” which startlingly included U.S. states such as Alaska, Hawaii, and California, along with European nations Finland and Poland. 

His remarks have caused a stir both domestically and internationally.

The clip gained traction after being shared on the social platform X by Anton Gerashchenko, highlighting the audacity of Mikheyev’s vision.

Gerashchenko’s translation and commentary underscored the potential seriousness of such statements in the current geopolitical climate.

“Russian propagandists dream about the new world order,” he wrote. “And you know what? They mean it.”

The television host responded to Mikheyev’s comments by labeling them as mere “wishful thinking,” attempting to distance the program from any real political advocacy. 

This response suggests an awareness of the controversial nature of such statements.

Contrary to the host’s dismissive attitude, Gerashchenko warned that Russian propagandists might genuinely aspire to these grandiose plans, indicating a more alarming interpretation of Mikheyev’s comments.

“Did you want a new world order? Here you go,” he wrote. “Venezuela is annexing its 24th state, Guyana-Essekibo. This is happening right under the nose of the once great hegemon USA. All that’s left is for Mexico to take back Texas and the rest. It’s time for Americans to think about their future, and also about Alaska.”

The discussion brought up historical ties, noting that Alaska was once a Russian colony before being sold to the United States in 1867. 

This historical connection is often revisited in Russian discourse about territorial claims.

The segment aligns with previous statements from other Russian figures, including lawmakers who have hinted at challenges to U.S. territorial integrity, suggesting a pattern in Russian rhetoric that revisits past territorial possessions.

Interestingly, Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously addressed questions about reclaiming Alaska, dismissing them as impractical. 

However, his administration’s recent actions to protect Russian historical properties abroad have reignited discussions about such ambitions.

This episode illustrates the ongoing use of state media to broadcast nationalistic and sometimes expansionist sentiments, serving both domestic audiences and international observers. 

It raises questions about the boundary between hypothetical discussion and actual policy intentions.

Internationally, such statements are likely to be scrutinized as indicators of Russian foreign policy interests and the potential for future territorial disputes. 

This situation underscores the complex and often tense relationships between Russia, its neighbors, and the global community.
