The special operation or invasion in Ukraine, “whatever way you see it” has had a polarising effect on the world.

It has literally divided the world!
On one side you have the west led by the United States and on the other you have Russia which is supported by its allies.

In this video, we explore which direction Thailand will go in regard to whom it aligns with.

Thai-Russian defence collaboration is hardly new, and Thailand, which is also a U.S. treaty ally, has never shied away from fostering ties with other major powers as well, including China and Russia.

But cooperation between Moscow and Bangkok has been on the uptick in recent years.
Thailand has been looking to boost relations with several other nations following a coup in Ukraine in May 2014, as well as Thailand, which complicated its ties with the United States and other Western nations.

Russia under Vladimir Putin which is increasingly isolated from the West and its markets has been looking to boost its presence in the Asia-Pacific, including in Southeast Asia.

The official line is that Thailand supports Russia and Ukraine to continue peace talks until a peace agreement is reached.
The two countries should join hands to prevent a large-scale humanitarian crisis and provide humanitarian assistance in time.
Stop the negative fallout and maintain the momentum of global economic recovery.
The two countries should cherish the hard-won peace and development in the Asian region and promote peace and stability in the region and beyond.

China’s growing influence with Thailand has The United States worried as the nearly two century-year-old treaty maybe under threat and is part and parcel of Beijing’s increasing reach in Southeast Asia.

Bangkok has grown tired of Washington’s bullying tactics and human rights abuses, highlighted by coup attempts in 2006 and 2014, the second of which temporarily led the United States to suspend military aid and put current Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha in power.

Some in Washington (and inside the Thai parliament) fear that Thailand could veer further toward the path of the Philippines, another long-time U.S. ally that has cozied up to Beijing in recent years.

Although Thailand joined with 140 other countries (including seven of its ASEAN partners) in voting for a non-binding UN General Assembly resolution ‘deploring’ Russia’s attack, its foreign ministry has refused to condemn Russia by name.

Bangkok joined 57 other nations and abstained from voting at the United Nations General Assembly when it suspended Moscow from the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC).

Across the world, battles are being fought over how the war in Ukraine is discussed and presented.

In Thailand, the tussle over narratives has played out not just on TV channels, but also on social media and at opposing press briefings and rival statements organised by the Russian and Ukrainian embassies.

Thailand, whose foreign policy has traditionally been likened to bamboo “bending with the wind”, has maintained that it has a neutral stance on the war.

Reaction within Thailand to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has often reflected the country’s highly polarised politics.
People tend to think of the Ukraine war in terms of their perception towards democracy or authoritarianism.

Prominent conservatives have expressed support or sympathy for Russia, while many young people, who have protested for political and monarchy reform at home, have rallied behind Ukraine.

Conservatives describe Russia as a longstanding friend, referring to how, more than 100 years ago, Tsar Nicholas II helped Siam resist colonialist pressure.

Vladimir Putin is applauded for his strong style of governance, which has been admiringly likened to that of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
They think Xi Jinping led China to be a successful economy, and that he is very decisive in taking measures against corruption.
Conservative people are fond of that kind of leadership.

Antagonism towards the US, which some establishment figures accuse of stoking Thailand’s recent youth-led protests, has also shaped conservative responses to the conflict.

While outright support for Russia’s invasion is a minority view, commentary that is favourable to Putin has circulated widely on social media chat groups, especially among older generations and people who are sceptical of Western Media.

Both liberal and more conservative voices in Thailand have criticised the west for its role in the crisis.
