I'm seeing those as well. The connection attempts are harmless, but
annoying, since they fill up the logs.

I decided to "solve" the problem by restricting the IP range that can
access my sshd to the class-A blocks that are most commonly used in my
country. Maybe it's not a truly elegant solution, but it's simple, and
it works.
