You’ve got to give them credit for extra effort. Thousands of young Russians are reportedly fleeing the country to avoid getting drafted into the country’s military assault on Ukraine. Most are seeking refuge in bordering nations like Finland or Kyrgyzstan. But this week two Russians landed on Alaska’s St. Lawrence Island after sailing 60 miles across the Bering Strait from Russia. That still put them some 750 miles from the nearest Coast Guard station, which was asked to respond on behalf of the Customs and Border Protection agency. Alaskan officials are wondering if they had better plan for a flood of asylum seekers from Russia.
