2 min read

Moscow: The Russia-Ukraine war has been going on since last year. Indonesia’s most famous holiday island has been flooded with thousands of Russians and Ukrainians since the war began. The citizens of both the countries want to avoid war. According to a CNN report, in 2022, about 58,000 Russians visited Bali. More than 7,000 Ukrainians are also slated to visit the Southeast Asian idyllic destination in 2022 and around 2,500 had arrived at the site in January this year. The high number of Russian travelers to Indonesia has made it the second largest group of tourists after Australians.

Despite Kiev banning all men aged 18 to 60 from leaving the country, the number of Russians and Ukrainians in Bali has grown rapidly. Many youths of Russia have fled to other countries. According to the report, people fleeing violence in Ukraine and Russia have created problems for the Balinese authorities. Officials have urged an end to Indonesia’s visa-on-arrival policy for Russian and Ukrainian citizens because tourists continue to make the island their home long after visas have expired.

Does the International Court of Justice have the power to ‘take action’ against Putin?

Many Ukrainians in Bali alleged that Russians were involved in most of the incidents. A police officer reportedly said, ‘Whenever we get a report about a foreigner behaving badly, it’s always a Russian.’ Foreigners come to Bali but they behave as if they are above the law . This has always been the case and it must eventually stop.’ However, it is not just Bali that is bearing the brunt of the war but Thailand’s Phuket island, famous for its beaches, has also seen a sudden influx of Russian tourists. Many Russians have bought their own apartments in Thailand. He says that ‘no one wants to live and live in the middle of a war’.
