A total of 500 Russian schoolchildren will spend their summer vacation in east China's Dalian and Qingdao cities from July 31 to August 9, the Russian Ministry of Education and Science has announced.

The visit partly reciprocates the Russian reception of 1,573 Chinese schoolchildren from southwest China's Sichuan Province after it was devastated by an earthquake on May 12, 2008, according to the Ministry.

The 500 Russian children are from 26 regions in Siberia and the Far East, which were also the first regions to receive Chinese schoolchildren in 2008-2009. During their stay in China, they will visit Beijing and PrimaMedia, a private media company, the Ministry said Thursday.

Representatives from Russian government agencies, doctors, physical training instructors and translators will accompany the children, according to the Ministry.

Altogether, 1,000 Russian schoolchildren will spend their summer holidays in China in 2010 and 2011.
