The attacks occurred roughly in the same area within 24 hours of each other. Some experts said the appearance of sharks in these waters might be linked to climate change.

In one case, a teenager was attacked while swimming near the Zheltukhina island some 6,500 km (4,000 miles) east of Moscow.

"The second shark attack on a human was registered…in the waters of the Sea of Japan," the local Emergency Ministry said in a statement posted on its website www.mchspk.ru.
