(Evangelical Focus) — Persecuted evangelical Christians in Russia should be granted asylum in Germany, a court in the city of Düsselorf said.
According to news website Idea, Russian Baptists fled to Germany after groups of young people wearing black uniforms followed them during mission activities, verbally and physically attacking them in several occasions.
Relatives also received phone calls with threats. According to the lawyer representing the asylum seekers, the Russian police did not offer protection nor did stop the aggressions.
