    Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova was delighted to entertain children at the Artek summer camp in Crimea on Wednesday.

    Children  at a summer camp in Crimea were treated to a day's activities led by Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Wednesday, who is the first of the camp's "star counselors" to spend a day with the children.

    Zakharova said she was proud to be was one of several counselors at the internationally renowned Artek children's center on the Black Sea. The camp was first established in 1925 as a resort for young pioneers – the Soviet equivalent of Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts.

    "I was a top student, I graduated school with honors, but I never got to go to Artek. So, today is a triumph of justice!" Zakharova said, as reported by Lenta.ru.
