Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a partial mobilization order for 300,000 reserve troops in Russia, and thousands of people are flocking to the border to avoid it.

Germany and the European Union said they could accept asylum applications from Russian leavers.

German Interior Minister Nancy Pager, in an interview with the Allgemeinezon Tax Zeitung (FAS) in Frankfurt, Germany on the 22nd (local time), said, “Deserts under serious threat of oppression receive international protection in Germany in principle .” at risk can apply for asylum on the grounds of political persecution.”

He added, however, that political asylum is not automatically granted, and that asylum applications are approved on a case-by-case basis after a security check.

A spokeswoman for the EU Commission, Anita Hipper, told DPA that those who fled Russia after the mobilization order was declared had the right to apply for asylum in the EU.

According to foreign media such as the BBC, immediately after President Putin announced a partial mobilization order on the 21st, the number of people fleeing the country to escape coercion is increasing in Russia.

At the Verkhni Lars border checkpoint on the Georgian border with Russia, a 5-6 km long queue of vehicles was formed. When traffic came to a standstill due to the rush of vehicles, some drivers eventually abandoned their cars and took themselves out for a run.

In just a few hours after the declaration of the mobilization order, all flight tickets to neighboring countries such as Turkey (Turkey) and Armenia where visa-free entry is possible were sold.

According to Euronews, flights to Belgrade, Serbia, are currently trading on the black market for around 9,000 euros (around 12.4 million won). Given that it was traded at 850 euros the day before, the price of a plane ticket has more than doubled in one day.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that Russian authorities could recruit 1 million people in the future. Independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported that a partially classified dispatch ordinance signed by Putin contained content that would allow up to a million people to be called. However, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the report “a lie.”

Navy Admiral Vladimir Tzymlysky, head of the Russian General Staff Mobilization Department, explained that the Ministry of Defense plans to mobilize 120,000 men during the regular autumn conscription operation, TASS news agency reported. “Privates and sergeants under the age of 35, junior officers under the age of 50 and senior officers under the age of 55 are eligible to be mobilized,” he said. This suggests that women can also be conscripted.
