In Germany, they did not see in the refusal to serve in the army a reason to protect the Russians
ATGermany did not see the refusal of Russians to serve in the army as a reason for granting asylum Conscription into the Russian army on the basis of universal military duty is not a reason to provide Russians with protection in Germany, since Russia, like other countries, has the legal right to support the Armed Forces, the German authorities noted
Refusal to serve in the Russian army and desertion are not automatic grounds for protecting Russians in Germany. This was reported to Deutsche Welle (DW, entered by the Ministry of Justice in the register of foreign media agents) at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF).
“Like other countries, Russia has the legal right to maintain armed forces. An act of persecution by the state can only be assumed if the measures of persecution and possible penalties are disproportionate,— explained at BAMF.
At the end of May, Germany announced the granting of asylum to Russians “who are being persecuted and threatened.” Among those to whom Berlin is ready to grant asylum, were listed:
- human rights defenders, “at risk”;
- representatives and supporters of the democratic opposition who opposed the special military operation ;
- scientists who openly opposed the special military operation and “can no longer freely and independently pursue their scientific activities”;
- persons who have worked or collaborated with organizations that are classified in Russia as “undesirable foreign organizations”, or persons who are classified as foreign agents and who are associated with Germany through their activities;
- representatives of non-governmental organizations and civil society , “which are related to Germany” and who also spoke out against the special operation;
- journalists of independent media, “subject to repression and danger in Russia”;
- journalists who spoke out against the operation “or were fired because of their critical coverage in the state-controlled media.”
“The prerequisite for inclusion is the existence of a relevant individual threat to various groups of people”, — specified by the German authorities.
