Five Russian men reportedly fled Russia to South Korea between October and November after a mobilization order was issued. The men have been stranded ever since and have been seeking refuge in South Korea.

The men’s refugee application was “dismissed,” saying that it was not ‘not being worthy of evaluation,’ stating that refusal for ‘conscription was not a reason for refugee recognition.’  The men’s advocate, Mr. Lee Jong-chan, has been on the case ever since, attempting to convince South Korea’s Ministry of Justice to at least evaluate the men’s application.

Likewise, back in October, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization in Russia, whereby citizens of the country will be ordered to prepare and organize troops for active military service.

Currently, court rulings are still underway to determine whether the men’s applications will be deemed worthy of evaluation and whether they will be granted refugee status. As for their well-being, the men receive one meal a day, which is lunch, and can shower but would have to wash their clothes by hand and are unable to leave the departure and duty-free areas, said the advocate.

The case has rattled many across the globe, with many in South Korea also protesting for the acceptance of the men’s refugee application. Others, however, have also expressed several concerns. This prompted Real Research, an online survey platform, to launch a survey on the Russians seeking refuge in Korea.
