Many pro-Russian propagandists, including Dugin himself, like to claim that the Russian Empire was never a colonial empire. They are lying, of course:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_America

Quote
Russian America (Russian: Русская Америка, Russkaya Amerika) was the name of the Russian colonial possessions in North America from 1733 to 1867. Its capital was Novo-Arkhangelsk (New Arkhangelsk), which is now Sitka, Alaska, United States. Settlements spanned parts of what are now the U.S. states of California, Alaska and three forts in Hawaii. Formal incorporation of the possessions by Russia did not take place until the Ukase of 1799 which established a monopoly for the Russian–American Company and also granted the Russian Orthodox Church certain rights in the new possessions. Many of its possessions were abandoned in the 19th century. In 1867, Russia sold its last remaining possessions to the United States of America for $7.2 million ($132 million in today's terms).
...
Beginning in 1743, small associations of fur-traders began to sail from the shores of the Russian Pacific coast to the Aleutian islands.[4] As the runs from Asiatic Russia to America became longer expeditions (lasting two to four years or more), the crews established hunting- and trading-posts. By the late 1790s some of these had become permanent settlements. Approximately half of the fur traders came from the various European parts of the Russian Empire, while the others had Siberian or mixed origins.[citation needed]

Rather than hunting the marine life themselves, the Russian promyshlenniki forced the Aleuts to do the work for them, often by taking hostage family-members in exchange for hunted seal-furs.[5] This pattern of colonial exploitation resembled some of the Russian promyshlenniki practices in their expansion into Siberia and the Russian Far East.[6] As word spread of the potential riches in furs, competition among Russian companies increased and the Aleuts were enslaved.[5][7] Catherine the Great, who became Empress of Russia in 1763, proclaimed goodwill toward the Aleuts and urged her subjects to treat them fairly. On some islands and parts of the Alaska Peninsula, groups of traders had been capable of relatively peaceful coexistence with the local inhabitants. Other groups could not manage the tensions and committed acts of violence. Hostages were taken, families were split up, and individuals were forced to leave their villages and settle elsewhere. The growing competition between the trading companies, merging into fewer, larger and more powerful corporations, created conflicts that aggravated the relations with the indigenous populations. Over the years, the situation became catastrophic.[citation needed]

As the animal populations declined, the Aleuts, already too dependent on the new barter-economy fostered by the Russian fur-trade, were increasingly coerced into taking greater and greater risks in the highly dangerous waters of the North Pacific to hunt for more otter. As the Shelekhov-Golikov Company of 1783-1799 developed a monopoly, its use of skirmishes and violent incidents turned into systematic violence as a tool of colonial exploitation of the indigenous people. When the Aleuts revolted and won some victories, the Russians retaliated, killing many and destroying their boats and hunting gear, leaving them no means of survival. The most devastating effects came from disease: during the first two generations (1741/1759-1781/1799 AD) of Russian contact, 80 percent of the Aleut population died from Eurasian infectious diseases; these were by then endemic among the Europeans, but the Aleut had no immunity against the new diseases.[8]

Though the Alaskan colony was never very profitable because of the costs of transportation, most Russian traders were determined to keep the land for themselves. In 1784 Grigory Ivanovich Shelekhov, who later set up the Russian-Alaska Company[9][better source needed] that developed into the Alaskan colonial administration, arrived in Three Saints Bay on Kodiak Island with two ships, the Three Saints (Russian: Три Святителя) and the St. Simon.[10] The Koniag Alaska Natives harassed the Russian party and Shelekhov responded by killing hundreds and taking hostages to enforce the obedience of the rest. Having established his authority on Kodiak Island, Shelekhov founded the second permanent Russian settlement in Alaska (after Unalaska, permanently settled since 1774) on the island's Three Saints Bay.

In 1790 Shelekhov, back in Russia, hired Alexander Andreyevich Baranov to manage his Alaskan fur-enterprise. Baranov moved the colony to the northeast end of Kodiak Island, where timber was available. The site later developed as what is now the city of Kodiak. Russian colonists took Koniag wives and started families whose surnames continue today, such as Panamaroff, Petrikoff, and Kvasnikoff. In 1795 Baranov, concerned by the sight of non-Russian Europeans trading with the natives in southeast Alaska, established Mikhailovsk six miles (10 km) north of present-day Sitka. He bought the land from the Tlingit, but in 1802, while Baranov was away, Tlingit from a neighboring settlement attacked and destroyed Mikhailovsk. Baranov returned with a Russian warship and razed the Tlingit village. He built the settlement of New Archangel (Russian: Ново-Архангельск, romanized: Novo-Arkhangelsk) on the ruins of Mikhailovsk. It became the capital of Russian America – and later the city of Sitka.

As Baranov secured the Russians' settlements in Alaska, the Shelekhov family continued to work among the top leaders to win a monopoly on Alaska's fur trade. In 1799 Shelekhov's son-in-law, Nikolay Petrovich Rezanov, had acquired a monopoly on the American fur trade from Tsar Paul I. Rezanov formed the Russian-American Company. As part of the deal, the Tsar expected the company to establish new settlements in Alaska and to carry out an expanded colonisation programme.

NEVER FORGIVE. NEVER FORGET.

Now you Know why many pro Russian propagandists on the “left” purporting to be “anti colonialist” are actually Jewish.

Putin's Russia Claims 'Alaska Is Ours' As West Rushes Arms To Ukraine l Mere Threat Or New Crisis?
Quote
Amid the ongoing tense standoff between US and Russia over Ukraine, Alaska has emerged as the latest flashpoint. Billboards reading ‘Alaska is Ours’ have been spotted in Russia's Krasnoyarsk city and the sign has gone viral on social media. The sign was spotted a day after Putin’s ally, Vyacheslav Volodin, threatened to ‘take back’ Alaska in response to US sanctions. In March, Russian State Duma member Oleg Matveychev also called on the Kremlin to reclaim Alaska. After Ukraine, US and Russia to clash over Alaska?

The first Russian colony in Alaska was founded in 1784 by Grigory Shelikhov. Subsequently, Russian explorers and settlers continued to establish trading posts in mainland Alaska, on the Aleutian Islands, Hawaii, and Northern California.

An assembly meeting in Alaska turned into a racial debacle when a community member used the public comments portion to espouse his racist views that Indigenous Americans should go “home,”
...
a white man in a collared shirt stood up to casually argue for Alaskan Natives to be kicked out of Anchorage.

The man, who identified himself as David Lazer, started by complaining about the area’s homeless problem.

“Like, 80 percent are the Natives. I have to call them ‘Indians,’” he said, grumbling that Indigenous Americans are considered Native but his white children born in Alaska are not. “My children were born here, and they’re not Native. This is not a white-Black problem. This is an Indian problem.”

“I say send them home to their native village. A Native Corporation is the problem, not a white problem,” Lazer continued, using the term for partnerships of organizations formed in Alaska to protect Native culture in the area. “Why should we be paying for a Native problem? Send them home. They would be happy there, and we would be happy. They could drink, smoke, do dope, and whatever they do in the villages with their own people and they would be happy.”

After essentially advising a “separate but equal” philosophy for Alaskan Natives in Anchorage, Lazer said that the city should expel them.

“After the Native convention next week, let them take their homeless home with them,” Lazer said while also providing a financial plan on the so-called efficiency of booting Native Americans from the area.

“Putting them in a hotel, putting them in places, feeding them, next spring, next summer you’re going to have the same problem,” he said. “No one talks about eliminating the problem. I say send them home. Send the bill to the Native Corporation.”

He also suggested shipping them to sanctuary cities, similar to what the Texas government has done with asylum seekers.
...
According to business registration files, Lazer owns a tour company just outside of Anchorage in Palmer, Alaska. His company was bombarded with negative reviews after footage of the assembly meeting was shared online.

“The owner of this business stepped to the microphone at the Anchorage Assembly and told the world that Alaska Natives should ‘go home,’” a Yelp reviewer wrote under Lazer Tours’ profile. “The horrible irony of this is that he makes his living showing tourists the Alaska Natives' home, while simultaneously having such vile disrespect for it and them.”

Woke comments:

What he fails to realize is that he is the one that should go home to Europe.

Old white bigots never understand anything but their own white privilege.

He'd probably be fine with Russians in Alaska, though.....
