President Dmitry Medvedev on Friday ordered the children ombudsman to put a law regulating children's holidays under control.

He said checks should be carried out with the General Prosecutor Office and other authorities, RIA Novosti news agency reported.

The move followed a July 7 incident in the southern region of Khrasnodar, where six Moscow pupils and an instructor drowned during a summer camp beach trip.

Medvedev said that the existence of private camps may cause problems and stressed that local authorities should be also in charge of children' s vacations.

"I turn to the authorities of Khrasnodar region as well, otherwise, they will be responsible for it as all the rest," Medvedev said.
