Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has released its statement to express its concerns over the Russia-Ukraine situation following Russia’s invasion and Ukraine’s emergency state declaration this morning, February 24th.

The statement said that Thailand has been following developments in Ukraine and especially the escalation of tensions in Europe with deep concern. The country supports ongoing efforts to find a peaceful settlement to the situation through dialogue.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, there are 139 legal Thai workers who are still employed in Ukraine, as of January 2022. Of which, 116 are self-traveling and 23 are with a larger company. Most of them work in massage and spa positions and about 126 of them are from a union/group of job seekers that work abroad.

The Royal Thai Embassy in Warsaw, Poland has closely communicated with the Thai people in order to prepare for a timely resolution as well as health assistance.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O’Cha has ordered the Ministry to constantly inform him about the situation in Ukraine and has planned to deploy chartered planes to directly evacuate Thai people from Ukraine. In case of closed airspace, the Thai authorities would arrange vehicles to collect Thai people to Warsaw Airport to return to Thailand via chartered planes.

Thai people residing in Ukraine can contact for help at The Royal Thai Embassy in Warsaw, Poland, via the phone number +48-696-642-348 (24 hours) or E-mail:
