The Russians fled in droves from the mobilization. Asylum Minister: They can be deported
At the end of June 2022, Minister Van der Burg decided that Russian conscripts who refuse to fight in Ukraine can stay in the Netherlands until at least the end of the year.
“Russians who do not want to fight in Ukraine and come to the Netherlands will definitely not be sent back”
– confirmed the politician in September after the Russian president announced a partial mobilization.
The old policy is the past
According to the information provided to members of the lower house of parliament (Tweede camera) by the Ministry of Justice and Security, this is a thing of the past.
“Russians no longer need to be afraid of the appointment, because the Russian defense minister announced the end of the mobilization and ordered the military units to stop the mobilization work on October 31.”
the resort wrote.
Therefore, the IND will treat the applications of Russian conscripts in the same way as other asylum seekers in the Netherlands, which means that they can be rejected. A different situation will apply to Russians who have deserted from the army, explains the minister. They will still be able to stay in the Netherlands and the office will not be able to deport them.
Martijn van der Linden of the refugee council told NPO Radio 1 that there are only a few dozen Russians in the Netherlands who have fled the mobilization.
