Germany wants EU solution for Russian conscientious objectors

The German government wants to reach a common line at European level in the coming weeks on how to deal with Russian conscientious objectors. That said government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit on Friday in Berlin.

The fact that many Russian men tried to evade military service in Ukraine after the partial mobilization announced on Wednesday was initially “a good sign,” he said. Now it is a question of finding “a viable solution” together with the other EU countries. In this special situation, just pointing out that anyone who manages to enter the country can apply for asylum is not sufficient.

In each individual case, however, the motives of the alleged conscientious objector must always be checked before admission, Hebestreit emphasized. Because it must be ensured that the person who is admitted is not someone who is moving to Europe on behalf of the Russian state power.
