Not very far. Ill test my knowledge so I won't look it up before answering. Seems like I heard there are either Russian or American islands within sight of one another or the other's mainland between Alaska and, what is it, Kamchatka?
about 2.5 miles at the closest point across the Bearing Straight.
No offense - but a thread was needed for this lol
Whatever melts your butter, dude.Measured in light years?
Wow, you came to complain.No offense - but a thread was needed for this lol
Google can be your friend so don't be afraid of it
Sorry not a complaint; just thought it was silly but in hindsight should have just ignored the thread.Wow, you came to complain.
In that case it’s 0.000000000000408 light years.Whatever melts your butter, dude.
About 24 or 52 miles. If you count Diomede AK, the former.
Actually the big island belongs to Russia from what I've read. I was unaware of these small islands out there. Interesting.About 24 or 52 miles. If you count Diomede AK, the former.

2 or 3 miles, if I remember correctly. Do I win anything?
I once heard someone say that they're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.I can't see Russia from my front porch... But I guess there are people in Alaska who say they can... So I guess it's pretty close...
There's a big house in Washington DC that Russia essentially rented for a while. I believe that they also have an embassy there.
