BANGKOK, August 12. /TASS/. The Russian embassy recommends the Russians in Thailand to be most cautious, head of the embassy’s Consular Department Vladimir Sosnov told TASS on Friday.
"The Russian embassy recommends the Russians, staying in Thailand, to refrain from going downtown if possible, to be most cautious, to avoid crowded areas and to follow strictly demands of the official authorities," he said.
