On March 2 and 3, 2019 «Siam Paragon», Bangkok’s biggest shopping and entertainment center hosted the 52nd Diplomatic Red Cross Charity Bazaar co-organized by the Thai Red Cross Society and foreign embassies. This annually event was held under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.
The Russian Embassy in Bangkok took an active part in the Bazaar. Traditional Russian souvenirs, namely «matryoshka» wooden nesting dolls, shawls and scarfs from Pavlov Posad, castle-shaped barrel organs, toys, fridge magnets and key holders were popular among the customers.
As a part of a concert program of the Bazaar the audience enjoyed the performance of students of the «Russian Embassy school Ballet Studio» directed by Ms. Julia Tutarskaya and young Thai dancers from the Folk Dance Ensemble «Katyusha» of Mrs. Ekaterina Alekseeva.
The proceeds from the Bazaar will be later passed to the Thai Red Cross Society Fund to be used for charity purposes.
