White House says Russians fleeing military draft should seek asylum in US

Russian men who are fleeing the country to avoid being drafted into Moscow’s war against Ukraine should seek asylum in the US, the White House said Tuesday.

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters at her regular briefing that the response inside Russia to the so-called “partial mobilization” ordered last week by the country’s president, Vladimir Putin, shows “this war that was started by the Kremlin is unpopular.”

“Regardless of their nationality, [people] may apply for asylum in the United States and have their claims adjudicated on a case by case basis,” Jean-Pierre added. “We welcome any folks who are seeking asylum and they should do that.

“What we’re seeing in Russia are the people of Russia who are saying they do not want this war, they do not support Putin’s war,” she went on.

The military call-up, in which the Kremlin seeks to draft some 300,000 men for the fighting in Ukraine — has sparked protests, violence, and a run on Russia’s borders. Airline tickets to the few countries still accepting direct flights from Russia have been sold out for days.

So they might be Russian to get away from the army and on over here.

I'm all for it as long as the Russians are sent to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. Remember where those Norweegans landed in The Яussians are Coming (1966)?

The U.S. became a refuge for all the Cuban exiles after Castro turned that island into a communist hellhole.

There are plenty of European countries that will take the Russian refugees who would be in a far better position to influence changes in their home country than if they were dispersed in America.

From the other side of the coin there are probably a good number of men who want to fight and serve of which we are not hearing about.

I’d say more Russian men will want to their patriarchal patriotic duty than those that don’t.

More Russian spies in America. Just what we need.

Soul Venal and MovieMan will take them in.

We may also see what these phony Hollywoke leftist gits are made of, or will they only support Ukrainians?

Yeah, and the same ones welcoming them with wide open arms would have felt differently had Americans been deserting if we had a draft during our Wars on Terror (Which is an oxymoron since war is terror and you don't fight terror by creating more of it.)

They would be called, "Cowards, traitors," and, "deserters," while being tarred and feathered and run out of the country by those who are happy with the Russians leaving.

As for myself, I am fine with anyone doing whatever it takes to get themselves out of a war situation.

Re: White House says Russians fleeing military draft should seek asylum in US

Russia can support Ukraine, once they surrender and the US can take care of its own domestic issues, like the awful and corrupted health care system it has.
