I was wondering who are these people , are they Turkic?
They look like Turks but I saw they were speaking in Russian.
Are the close to Sakha people?

Nothing to do with Turkic peoples.

They have their own language, but they also speak Russian.

The Chukchi are a  Mongoloid Paleo-Siberian people, closely related to the Yupik and some other peoples of Northeast Siberia. They are distantly related to the North American Eskimos. The Sakha (Yakuts) are a Caucasoid Turanian people but they've intermarried with the Paleosiberians and Tungusics of Eastern Siberia so they have some Mongoloid features. The Chukchi and the Sakha come from different ethnic and linguistic origins but due to geographical proximity in Eastern Siberia they may share some cultural traits.

Yakuts (Sakha) do not just have mongoloid features, they are mongoloids.
 
Chuckhi are not Turks, most of them actually still live in traditional communities and prefer to speak their language.

No, their language belongs to Paleo-Asiatic group.

Exactly, some Siberian inuits are actually their neighbors in Siberia. Chukchi and inuits have very similar customs and way of life.

The peoples of northeastern Siberia are very interesting ethnically and culturally, and also quite diverse. The Chukchi, Koryak, Yupik (Siberian Inuit), Kamchadal live along the coast. They are Paleo-siberians and each group has their own language (though the Kamchadal language is almost extinct, many Kamchadal have intermarried with Slavic Russians). These peoples, especially the Yupik, are related to the Eskimos (Inuit) of North America.

Further inland are Tungusic tribes such as the Evenki, Lamuts,Oroch, etc. who are related to the Manchus of China.

Also inland are the Yakuts (Sakhha) who are Turanian, and who may be distantly related to the Kazakhs and Kyrgyz. The Yakuts are the most numerous of these peoples, therefore perhaps having the best chance of preserving their native language.

There is also an inland people called the Yukaghirs who are thought to be possibly Turanian in origin but who speak a language not closely related to any other.
