According to the two US senators who represent the state, the men landed at a beach in the village of Gambell and requested asylum in the country. A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesperson said the duo’s asylum claim was currently being processed.
A local town clerk told the KTUU news station that the men had sailed there from the city of Egvekinot in north-eastern Russia, a journey of about 300 miles (480km) by sea, and have since been flown off the island.
