Today, Artek is a huge complex consisting of ten camps, which can simultaneously host 3,600 children (and up to 30,000 per year). The length of its coastline is 7 kilometers, and the total size of the territory, including all farms and protected areas reaches 208 hectares.
"The delegation has arrived to our camp. We are planning to show it two main locations. The first one is to show what has been done in the center over the last three years and the second is to meet with children from the United States, who are staying within the fifth camp session," Verbenko said.
Verbenko added that the program of the visit would be two hours long.
Tennison's first visit to Crimea took place last June as part of a delegation comprising around 10 US public figures, former officials and professors.
Crimea seceded from Ukraine to rejoin Russia in March 2014 following a referendum in which over 96 percent of voters supported the move. The West labeled the vote an illegal "annexation." Moscow has stated that the referendum fully complied with international law.
