Russian Chukotka residents and those from American Alaska face pleasant changes while traveling.
From now on, people of these regions can enter the US and Russia without visas.
Such a decision was taken after an Alaskan wished to visit Chukotka, and the American Department of the Bering Strait Regional Commission claimed it was ready to give a special notification allowing him to visit the Russian peninsula without a visa.
