The Russian takes a little time out at Phuket International Airport today

Drunk and Peed Off, Phuket Tourist Heading Home to Moscow

Saturday, June 7, 2014
PHUKET: Security staff at Phuket International Airport are still trying to figure out how a Russian tourist managed to stay drunk around the clock and hope he is safely on his way home tomorrow. The 35-year-old man caused disruption at the airport from 10am on Friday when he first came to the attention of authorities. Urinating in a resort's office is sure to create interest. After a trip to Bangkok Hospital Phuket to patch a cut, the man was booked on a new flight to Moscow at 7.25am on Sunday.

Airport staff are wondering how this tourist managed to 'stay drunk around the clock'? They only have to walk a few metres outside into the car park to seek the counsel of several taxi drivers there.

Last night I heard a from my 4th floor condo I heard loud crash. Looking below where 2 Russians I male 1 female laid out on he pavement. There crumpled motorbike lay beside them. They had just ploughed into the wall. I was just about to go down a see how they where when the both sat up against the wall, the man pulling a bottle from his backpack and they both sat there and drank. Whatever injuries they had must have been minor. 5 min later they both got up, picked up the motobike and parked it and went into the Bldg.I am not longer amazed at anything this nationality does.

I don't understand for what reason this "news" were published at all. I wonder if I provide stories like these with photos and videos about representatives of other nationalities that I come across here quite often, would it be published as well???

Editor Comment:

Of course. If the authorities at the airport or anywhere else think a person's actions are newsworthy, we will consider publication. Staying drunk at the airport for two days merits attention.
