Children from 76 of countries became members of the Artek camp. Current international shift is held under the slogan “We are different - we are equal,” TASS reports. It is the largest of all in Artek this year.

Nearly three and a half thousand youngsters gathered on the Crimean coast of the Black Sea. They represent seventy-six countries from around the world and almost eighty regions of our country. They were joined by more than forty volunteers who will act as translators.

A festival of national cultures will be held as part of the session, as well as competitions called Friendship in dance and Games of the peoples of the world. There will also be Many-sided World Carnival.

According to acting director of the camp Konstantin Fedorenko, the main task of this session is the formation of mutual trust.
