    I know the Russian empire had Alaska but I think the long distance away from the rest of the country means they couldn't protect it military. What if Russia kept Alaska do you guys think the USSR or Russian Empire could have protected it from the US during the Russian Revolution in 1917 or during or after World War II? I think it would have been difficult. These two articles do a good job of explaining the situation.
