President worried about the situation with 'Artek'

President Victor Yushchenko wrote a letter to Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko expressing concerns about the situation with International children's center ‘Artek'.

According to him the Presidential Decree of November 27 foreseeing the Government taking measures aimed at development of ‘Artek' has not yet been implemented; moreover, some mass media recently announced allegations about the Government pushing ‘Artek' towards bankruptcy to later sell out the property to private investors.

In this regard President Yushchenko addressed Prime Minister Tymoshenko with the request to apply measures in order to normalize functioning of the recreation centre.
