The United States has resumed the deportation process to Russia. Recently, a Russian man who sought asylum in the United States was deported because he feared mobilization in the Russian Federation.

The Guardian reports it.

According to media reports, after the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, the United States suspended deportations to the Russian Federation.

However, last weekend, a young Russian who arrived in the United States to escape Russian dictator Putin’s attempts to mobilize citizens for war in Ukraine was unexpectedly deported by the United States back to Russia.

At the same time, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said this week that it is conducting deportations to countries, including Russia, in accordance with guidelines for deportation from the United States.

It is not known when the deportations to Russia resumed. The White House did not respond to the publication’s request for comment.

At the same time, a lawyer from Texas, Jennifer Scarborough, told the publication that among her clients are four Russians who have sought asylum in the United States out of fear of being mobilized in the Russian Federation.

Immigration officials told her one of her clients had been deported over the weekend. She has no doubts that he was taken to Russia.

Two of Scarborough’s other clients have deportation orders and could be deported to Russia at any time, he said.

According to the attorney, immigration officials determined that the fear of being drafted did not meet the “credible fear” criteria and each appealed to an immigration judge, who agreed they did not meet the criteria.

It will be recalled that earlier it was assumed in Ukrainian intelligence that Russia was preparing for another wave of mobilization. The GUR stated that through several waves of mobilization, the Russian Federation would attempt to assemble an army of up to 2 million soldiers.

However, analysts from the Institute for the Study of War noted that the Kremlin is unlikely to plan a large-scale mobilization.
