Korea sees surge in number of asylum seekers from Russia

기사 요약: 지난해 5천 7백 여명의 러시아인이 한국 정부에 난민 신청, 2022년 비해 5배 늘어난 이유는?

[1] South Korea saw a significant rise in the number of Russian asylum seekers last year, with over 5,000 submitting refugee applications, a government report found Monday.

*asylum: 망명

[2] According to the latest monthly report by the Korea Immigration Service under the Ministry of Justice, the number of Russian nationals who sought refugee status in Korea last year stood at 5,750, a five-fold increase from the number of asylum applications by Russian nationals in 2022, which stood at 1,038. The number is also almost equivalent to the total number of Russian asylum seekers over 26 years between 1994 and 2019.

*refugee: 난민, 망명자

*five-fold: ~배

[3] A total of 18,838 refugee applications were reported last year, a 63 percent increase from the previous year. Russians accounted for over 30 percent, followed by Kazakhstan nationals with 2,094, Chinese with 1,282, Malaysians with 1,205 and Indian nationals with 1,189.

*account for: (부분, 비율을) 차지하다/ 설명하다

[4] The dramatic increase is believed to be due to growing concerns among Russians over the possible additional conscription of citizens for Moscow's war against Kyiv. President Vladimir Putin began a military mobilization in September 2022, putting many men at risk of getting drafted.

*conscription: 징병제 (call up, draft)

*mobilization: 동원/ 유통
