On January 22, 2018 the Children’s center "Seven Flowers Co. Ltd" (Pattaya), headed by Irina Novikova, was admitted to the International Council of Russian Compatriots and, in accordance with the Council’s Charter, is now authorized to carry out its activities pertaining to implementation of the Council’s decisions in Thailand.
The International Council of Russian Compatriots (ICRC) is a large global association of organizations of Russian compatriots, including in its ranks 137 organizations from 52 countries. The history of the creation of the ICRC starts in October 2001.
The group of enthusiasts from among Russian citizens living in Pattaya has volunteered to assume organizational functions to maximize the involvement of compatriots in ongoing social, cultural and other activities in Thailand, to protect their rights and defend their interests, as well as to raise funds to support this work.
This event is an important landmark for Russians living in Thailand. We hope that the Center’s work will encourage the process of consolidating the Russian diaspora and strengthening its ties with Russia.
