SIMFEROPOL, May 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on the second day of his trip to the Crimean Federal District will visit the famous children's holiday camp Artek.

Medvedev also plans to visit an Olympic sports training center in Alushta.

The International children's camp Artek had been inaugurated in 1925. Nowadays, the camp is far from its best condition.

There are nine children's camps and two sanatoriums in Sevastopol.

As the leader of the United Russia party (URP), Medvedev received citizens at the Sevastopol public reception office of the URP Chairman. Questions raised by local residents concerned social welfare, education, culture, assistance to veterans of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 and to the disabled. On the basis of people's applications, the Premier gave specific assignments to respective ministries and through the URP channels.
