Russia proper is considered white. We are not talking about the far east which aren't really natives to Russia.

They are ethnic Finns on the western side of Ural:

We did try to take the land back in WW2 but that went a tad pear shaped.

January was a pretty normal tourist month, just wait until March number are out in about 10 days time.

I believe those numbers were for January through March.  At least that's how I read this passing:

 

the number of international visitors arriving in Thailand between January and March fell by 8.54 million, or 35.3 per cent, to 15.67 million, compared to the same period last year.

 

Or maybe that was just for February since it says between January and March, so confused now....

I am suprised that Australia and UK do not make the Top 15.

 

I guess there are many reasons why those demographics have moved on to better options to leave whats left to places where Thailand is still considered relatively clean, safe and exotic.

Many of the tourist from these (and other European countries) would have arrived before X-mas/NY and have stayed 2-3 months (or perhaps even longer now....) but wouldn't be counted as "Arrivals" in Jan.

Well, maybe the slingshot posse is poised to shoot the chickens as they come home to roost?
