Monk & nun squat in protest for world peace close to Russian Embassy

A Buddhist monk and a nun squatting on a pavement in entrance of the Russian Embassy in Bangkok in protest over the battle between Ukraine and Russia, hope President Vladimir Putin will acknowledge their world peace vigil from space.
The couple’s marketing campaign may be seen as honourable within the eyes of many voters however the same can’t be said of pedestrians in the space who are not joyful as a result of they are forced to stroll on the street instead of the footpath.
A Thai TikTok consumer posted a video of the couple’s pavement shelter close to the Embassy of Russia in Bangkok with the caption that said…
“Please give the pavement again to pedestrians. #SupRoad #RussianEmbassy.” Watch the video HERE.
A Facebook page named, Hey! This is Thai Footpath, complained in regards to the shelter in October last yr. The web page said…
“Now, the footpath within the metropolis centre has turned into a slum.”
Khaosod reported that the shelter is located on a footpath alongside Sup Road throughout from the Russian Embassy within the Bang Rak district of Bangkok.
The monk and nun have lived in the shelter for over a yr. The shelter is provided with appliances, utensils, bedding sets, and different every day requirements, in addition to a 1-meter-high Buddha statue. Vinyl banners in entrance of the shelter display messages in four languages to both the President of Russia and the President of the People’s Republic of China saying…
“Welcome Mr President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China (PRC)” and “Welcome Mr President Vladimir Putin of Russia”
The monk, Phra Maha Wicharn Thammatheepo, who can also be president of the Centre for World Peace, gave an interview with Khaosod yesterday. He said…
“This area belongs to the Everlasting World Peace Temple. We need the warfare between Ukraine and Russia to cease. It is time for monks to do their duties. I chose to arrange the shelter here as a outcome of I want Putin to see our banners from space. I hope he will be calm after seeing the Buddha statue and banners. Wars will kill everyone.”
The monk added that no one has come to chase him away. Unauthorized said…
“Pedestrians should sacrifice their own advantages for world peace. Being egocentric results in catastrophe. I even have been right here for a yr and haven’t seen anyone wanting me to depart.”
Despite complaints from pedestrians, the monk and nun have not been chased by the authorities while relevant departments responsible for the pavements in Bangkok haven’t responded to any complaints.
The pavements in Bangkok are under the supervision of three main departments under the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) together with the Public Work Department, the Municipal Department, and each district workplace.
This standoff looks prone to go on..
