Palin has proven that you can see Russia from Alaska


The media never cease to lie that Sarah Palin has claimed that she can see Russia from her house. The truth is that Palin never said so; Tina Fey did (while impersonating Palin).

However, Palin did claim that you can see Russia from a certain part of Alaska, and that claim is correct. Alaskans have sent Palin dozens of pictures proving that it’s correct. Here’s one of them:

It was posted in a FB note written by Palin, and in that note, Palin added the following description of the picture:

“On the left of the photo is Little Diomede, behind it is Big Diomede, and to the right of them you can see the Russian mainland. Photo of Lynn Nelson.”

So yes, you can see Russia (specifically, the Big Diomede Islands and the Chukotka Peninsula, both of which are part of the Russian Federation) from Alaska.
