(ANSA-AFP) - BERLIN, 22 SET - Germany is ready to take in Russian deserters, ministers signalled Thursday, amid reports of people fleeing the partial mobilisation ordered by President Vladimir Putin. "Deserters threatened with serious repression can as a rule obtain international protection in Germany," Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said, according to excepts from an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.

Separately, Justice Minister Marco Buschmann tweeted using the hashtag "partial mobilisation" that "apparently, many Russians are leaving their homeland -- anyone who hates Putin's path and loves liberal democracy is welcome in Germany". (ANSA-AFP).
