You may recall that between the Thai monarchy and the Russian monarchy traditionally had very close ties. After all, the Russian monarchy was in its sacral roots, only in a different, Christian sense. But in our Orthodox tradition, the monarch, the king has the spiritual metaphysical significance. He is also the guarantor of the metaphysical religious legitimacy of the political system. Even the official national anthem of Thailand was written in 1888, Russian composer Surowski. So far it is the anthem of the Royal house of Thailand and sounds today during the ascent to the throne of the new Thai monarch. His coronation is held under Russian music.
