The narrowest distance between mainland Russia and mainland Alaska is approximately 90 kilometers. Some even speculate a bridge could connect the two regions, creating a land link between Eurasia and the Americas. However due to the low density of the population, very few international flights exist in that area.

What scheduled flights (if any) directly connect Alaska to Russia?

None, if you're looking only at major airlines. This is a map showing non-stop Russian destinations reachable from Fairbanks, Alaska. Here's Juneau, Nome and Anchorage.

However Air Russia operates for 8 weeks in the summer and for the fifth season this year, you can go from Anchorage to Petropavlovsk.

You can also charter a flight with Bering Air, though it requires a 3 week advance notice and 2 weeks to process the request.

There's also Yakutia Air which has flights from Anchorage to Petropavlovsk in the summer.
