Five hundred Serbian children aged 9-14 from Kosovo and Metohi arrive in Russia today to undergo treatment and rest
The children will be located at 11 different health camps and sanatoriums in Central Russia, and will be here until June 23. In addition to a June 4 concert called 'Wings of Hope,' the children will be greeted by Orthodox Patriarch Aleksei II in the Church of Christ the Savior. Before the concert, which will include some of Russia's best ensembles, the children will be able to visit the church. The visit by children from zones of inter-ethnic conflict is the continuation of the program 'Orthodox Christmas in Kosovo,' and was initiated by the Foundation of Andrei the First Called and the Center of Russia's National Glory. The program has received the blessing of the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, Aleksei II. Participants in the preparations included the administrations of Moscow, Kostroma, Nizhgorodskii, the Tver region, the Moscow Regional Committee for Social Security, the Russian Central Bank, the Moscow, October and Gorkii railroads, as well as other organizations. In January 2004, at the initiative of the Foundation of Andrei the First Called, Center of Russia's National Glory and 'Children of Kosovo,' representatives of government, social and religious organizations, as well as leading media outlets, visited Serbian villages in Kosovo and Metohi as part of the program 'Orthodox Christmas in Kosovo.' As a result of the visit, the issue of Kosovo was discussed in the Russian Federation Council, the Council of Europe, the UN and UNESCO, where the events in Kosovo were characterized as 'obvious genocide' taking place at the moment in the heart of 'civilized' Europe.
