ASYLUM STATEMENT FROM THE MINISTER OF THE GERMANY INTERIOR
After Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the partial mobilization decision in the country, thousands of people went to the border gates of neighboring countries. German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser announced that Russian citizens who do not want to join the military can apply for asylum. Faeser said that Russians who are threatened with repression should receive international protection in Germany and said, “Those who oppose Putin’s regime and therefore put themselves in great danger can apply for asylum in Germany.” Faeser also added that Germany has accepted the opponents of the Russian regime, who have been persecuted and threatened for months.

On the other hand, German Justice Minister Marco Buschmann said, “Anyone who hates Putin’s way and loves liberal democracy is welcome in Germany.”
