Sign now petition at Bundestag: Protection of conscientious objectors from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine
Initiative of Grüne Alternative
(20.11.2023) The right to conscientious objection is a human right. We therefore call on all politicians in the Bundestag to stand up for the protection and asylum of conscientious objectors and deserters from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. The people who have decided to say no to killing and against this war must be supported. At the same time, we call on the Bundestag to declare its solidarity with activists of the peace movement from the three countries.
Submission to the High Commissioner of the Human Rights Council
Report on Conscientious objection to military service and asylum
(05.10.2023) Dear Sirs and Madams,
We are very grateful for being given the opportunity to hand over a submission to the High Commissioner’s report on “conscientious objection to military service” to the Human Rights Council, under resolution 51/6. As a non-governmental organization assisting conscientious objectors internationally, we have focused our submission on the questions of conscientious objection to military service and asylum, especially given the current war in Ukraine.
Russian organizations call for protection and asylum for all conscientious objectors
(20.09.2023) One year after the partial mobilization, Connection e.V. today presents updated figures on the flight of men subject to military service from Russia. Based on a study by the independent network for analysis and policy RE: Russia, Connection e.V. concludes that at least 250,000 men subject to military draft from Russia have left the country since the beginning of the war against Ukraine and are seeking protection in other countries. Connection e.V. and the Protestant Association for Conscientious Objection and Peace (EAK) demand that steps finally be taken to protect these individuals.

New Profile is a feminist anti-militarist movement that has been active in Israel since 1998. I am writing this as a part of the. #ObjectWarCampaign, organized by Connection e.V., the International Fellowship of Reconciliation, the European Office for Conscientious Objection and War Resisters’ International. The #ObjectWarCampaign is a very important campaign that calls European countries to acknowledge the right to asylum of people that ran away from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine as an act of refusing to take part in the war, to kill or be killed.
