- Over 60 injured in Thai Opposition Rally in Bangkok
- Eleven Injured in Bangkok Protests
- Exiled Thai Prime Minister Hopes for Social Reconciliation
MOSCOW, November 26 (RIA Novosti) – Russian tourists in Thailand should avoid visiting the protest-laden capital Bangkok, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.
“The possibility of further escalation of the unrest should not be ruled out,” the ministry said in a statement. “In this respect, we recommend that Russians avoid visiting Bangkok. Those already there should take due care, comply with law enforcement officers’ demands and avoid crowded areas.”
Thai authorities have imposed a special security regime in the capital and neighboring regions after a huge rally on Sunday turned into large-scale anti-government protests this week.
The protestors demand the resignation of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her government, saying they act under control of her brother – ousted former premier Thaksin Shinawatra.
Thailand’s tourism authority earlier said the unrest posed no threat to foreign tourists.
