    MOSCOW, January 5th, 2004 (RIA Novosti correspondent) - As tradition has it, the Russian authorities have invited delegations of children from other parts of Russia, the CIS, Serbia and Montenegro to Moscow for New Year holidays. In all, 358 children have received invitations, according to the press centre of the Moscow City Hall and government.

    The little guests also include children from the areas hit by the Chernobyl accident, from servicemen's families, whose parents died or were wounded in action; boys and girls from families of perished miners and those hit by calamities, staffers of sponsored organisations and orphans.

    Moscow's government has approved the programme for the children's stay in the Russian capital from January 5 to 10, 2004.

    The children will go on a city sight-seeing tour and be guided around the Kremlin, visit museums, a circus, meet their mates, and see a New Year show in the Kremlin Palace. Each of them will receive a present.
