The news media usually fails to mention that Russia and the US share a border. There is no wall and not much traffic of refugees trying to pass illegally.
The Russia / United
States maritime boundary follows the June 1, 1990 USA/USSR
Maritime Boundary Agreement, but it has yet to be approved by
the Russian parliament. The United States Senate gave its
consent to ratification on September 16, 1991.
Two islands, Little
Diomede, US and Big Diomede, Russia lie between Russia and the
United States. The islands are only 35 km away from both
Chukotka, Russia and Alaska, US. Because the international Date
Line runs between them, the time difference between them is
about 21 hours.
Eastern border is with China.
