It was decided to feed starving Russians and Ukrainians, who still could not leave the resort province of Pattaya in Thailand, with rice and instant noodles cooking – popular Asian products. The free food distribution will be handled by a Pattaya Christian organization in collaboration with local authorities, Pattaya News said.
In this regard, the Hand to Hand Foundation invites Russians and Ukrainians to come to their center in the Banlamung district on April 21 (today), April 26 and April 28 from 14:00 to 16:00 to get a bag of rice and noodles – enough for some time.
In a letter published in Pattaya News, the foundation asked the public to warn the Russian and Ukrainian communities about this proposal so that as many people as possible know about them. In addition to providing food, the organization also wants to reach out to people to find out how it can help with other needs.
Throughout Thailand, officials and owners from various sectors have volunteered to help the Russians and Ukrainians. Last month, the International School of Tourism at Surat Thani Rajabhat University helped stranded Russians and Ukrainians stay at a hotel on Koh Samui for a nominal fee of about 10,000 rubles.
Also last month, one Bangkok restaurant, Eats Payao, allowed people to send food to stranded Ukrainians they know. More than 100 Thais have also asked for free housing for Ukrainians.
Thai's ambassador to Russia said in March that Thailand should form a new tourism tactic for Russians. So, in an interview with the Bangkok Post, he noted that the kingdom should adapt tourism to help the Russians in the current crisis. One of the ideas he came up with was using an app that allows Russians to use digital money or cryptocurrencies to pay bills and purchases.
The Russian embassy employee also said that gastronomic tourism establishments should sell more affordable food options to Russians, and not only delicacies, such as Tom Yam Kung soup.
By the way, with a new proposal to reformat the settlements between Russian tourists and travel companies, it was proposed in Turkey. Read the details in the article “In Turkey, they named the main problem with Russian tourists: it is proposed to pay for them by barter.”
