The action "Immortal Polk" has for the first time taken place in Thailand - RIA Novosti, 5/9/2017


Immortal Polk in Thailand
BANGKOK, on May 9 – RIA Novosti. The action "Immortal Polk" has for the first time taken place in Thailand, in the center of the resort of Pattaya. More than four hundred Russians have taken part in her. Since 18:00 local time (14:00 Moscow time), before the most subtropical twilight, Russians with portraits of the family participating in the Great Patriotic War and the Russian flags fluttering on wind have begun to gather on one of main squares of Pattaya — at the corner of Tsentralnaya Street and the sea embankment —. By 18:30 on the square, small by the size, not to force the way any more. Besides the citizens of the Russian Federation living and working in Pattaya the Russian tourists having a rest in a resort also have joined an action. Organizers of the event suggested all attendees to try "soldier's porridge" and to drink "fighting hundred grams" for the Victory. The action took place in the place of honor in Pattaya: at a huge portrait of the late king of Thailand Pkhumipkhon Aduljyadet reigning 70 years and who has died in October of last year. In the country year mourning for the monarch which was held in huge respect of the population still proceeds. On a question of how it was succeeded to achieve permission of city authorities to carrying out "Immortal Polk" exactly here, one of organizers of the event, the deputy honorary consul of Russia for the provinces of Chon Buri and Rayong Fedor Ozarenov, has answered that permission has been got "surprisingly easily". "We initiative group discussed different places in the city including this place as the best. We on him have stopped, and have for some reason allowed us" — the deputy honorary consul has told the agency. "This year by preparation the possibility of the organization of a procession wasn't discussed, however next year we plan to pass from Northern to the Central Pattaya on the embankment and we hope that to us it will be allowed. I think, next year with us there will be more Russians from Bangkok and other cities of Thailand: Pattaya became the first in this good business, and let while remains to the first" — Ozarenov has told. He has noted that organizers of an action expected 50-100 people, and more than 400 Russians have come to participate in it. "It reflects truly national character of our great holiday – the Victory Day" — the deputy honorary consul considers. In spite of the fact that the organizing committee of an action didn't request permission to a procession, organizers managed to agree on the place with police about passing of a column of Russians with flags and portraits of veterans on the wide sidewalk of the sea embankment. The Thai police officers voluntarily have volunteered to accompany a column and carefully watched that nobody has disturbed Russians. The action has ended at 19:30 local time (15:30 Moscow time) with mass photography with the Russian flags.
