A GERMAN family has fled their homeland and is seeking asylum in Russia after claiming they are no longer safe in their own country
Fleeing over the border in their VW camper van the Griesbach family told Vladimir Putin’s Government they had escaped the ‘German dictatorship’ where they could no longer raise their children.
Carola Griesbach, 51, and her husband Andre, 45, raced the 2,300 kilometres from northern Germany to Moscow’s Red Square.
Two of their daughters, Dominique and Julia, along with four of their grandchildren were also crammed into the van.
However, since arriving on New Year’s Eve in 2015, they have been stranded at a small motel in a forest outside the Russian capital.
