DTo avoid military call-up to fight in Ukraine, more than 20 Russians have sailed in yachts from North Pacific ports to South Korea, but most were denied entry, according to a media report.

South Korean broadcaster KBS reported that at least 21 Russians arrived aboard yachts at ports in the south of the country, but only two were granted entry while others were denied entry as authorities deemed their purpose “ambiguous”. .

A yacht with five Russian men on board left the South Korean island of Ulleung on Tuesday after arriving there September 30 after sailing from the eastern Russian city of Vladivostok, a coast guard official told Reuters on Wednesday.

The official said the yacht had “taken cover from inclement weather” and that people on board had received food and other assistance, but declined to specify why they were denied entry and referred immigration-related issues to the Justice Department.

KBS reported that three yachts, mostly carrying Russian men in their 20s to 30s, had docked in the southeastern port city of Pohang in the past few days.
