The Siberian Times reported that Russian Railways president Vladimir Yakunin proposed plans for one of the biggest highways and train routes ever developed. The new roadways would start in London and end in New York.
One of the road's biggest hurdles would be to cross the water separating North America and Eastern Europe. The distance is shortest at Alaska's Seward Peninsula, but Russia would still have to transport drivers or passengers 88 miles across the sea.
How the company going to do that is anybody's guess.
Yakunin's claim has credibility because, as CNN reports, he's a "personal friend" of Russian president Vladimir Putin. If Putin were to retire, then he might be next in line.
