The Thai embassy in Warsaw, Poland, has established a rescue centre in the Ukrainian city of Lviv, near the border with Poland, to serve as a temporary shelter for about 253 Thais who may be evacuated from their workplaces in Ukraine, according to an announcement by the embassy.

The Permanent Representative of Thailand to the United Nations has expressed support for a diplomatic solution regarding the Russia-Ukraine crisis, while the Thai embassy in Poland also stated that the situation in Ukraine is very tense and volatile and some roads have been blocked, making travel over land by private and public transport very difficult.

Permanent Representative Dr. Suriya Chindawongse made the remark during the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly. He said Thailand has been following developments in Ukraine with deep concerns, especially the escalation of tension threatening international peace and security.

Dr. Suriya said his delegation agrees with the Secretary-General’s approach. He said the method would see dialogue conducted in accordance with the Minsk agreements and other mechanisms, with a view to de-escalating the situation and finding a solution.
