Two Russians who arrived on St. Lawrence Island by boat were flown off the Bering Sea island by federal government officials this week, setting off a scramble by multiple agencies.

Few details about the situation were publicly known as of Wednesday, with federal and state officials saying very little.

4. According to the article it is 36 miles from mainland Russia to the tip of the island

but it would take only one big wave or you got off course or your engine went

of boat they took.

5. I recently watched a video on this topic

Apparently the natives in that area have been sailing back and forth for ages.

Interesting video!

6. Thanks for posting this. Different perspectives on a lot of things there. Beautiful place.

I did start to wonder about the DeSantis reference at about four minutes. The remark later that visiting the lower 48 would be "terrifying." "Manufactured racism." Made me wonder about the news sources available there. Pretty cool video.
