  How much??? Poor Russians :-(
by Sharrie

Speaking of oil & commercial interest...
Brings to mind another exchange.

Who knows!

Do u know Alaska was sold to the United States by the Russians at a bargain?
Guess how much the American government paid for it!
Just take a guess!

If you are Russian, you won't want to know that answer!
If you are American, congratulations!
You'll be VERY happy.
Happiness is in one's own hands.
You want to know the answer, go & find out from the internet sources ;-)
