Mobilization Russia also affects Utrecht residents I just want to

In the Netherlands, for the time being, we notice little of the attempt of many Russian men to flee abroad. “The number of asylum requests from Russians is still the same,” says Martijn van der Linden of Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland in Utrecht. According to him, people who want to avoid the mobilization initially mainly flee to neighboring countries, such as Georgia, Armenia or Turkey. “We don’t know yet whether they will also come to Europe.”
