    MOSCOW, May 13 (RIA Novosti) - 500 children from Kosovo and Metohija will come on vacations to Russia in June, President of the Andrew the First-Called Foundation, Alexander Melnik and representative of the Serbian coordination committee for Kosovo and Metohija, Zitan Ribac, the main organizers of this humanitarian action, said on Thursday.

    According to Zitan Ribac, these are children aged 9-14 who suffered from Albanian extremists. Most of them lost their families and homes and live in special enclaves in Kosovo and refugee camps. All in all, about 40,000 Serbian children live in Kosovo and Metohija today.

    "From June 2 to 23 Serbian children will be staying with Russian kids at health centers in Central Russia," said Alexander Melnik.

    The Andrew the First-Called Foundation is a public association founded in 1992 in Russia. The foundation defends the ideas of interaction and dialogue between civilizations based on the principles of mutual respect and importance of all cultures. The foundation's activities cover different spheres of public life. Among them are missionary work, publishing activities and active use of new information technologies. The Crucified Kosovo project of the Andrew the First-Called Foundation aims to cover not only recent events in Kosovo but also practical steps taken to support Kosovo Serbs.
