A delegation from Syria will visit the "Yalta International Economic Forum" organized by the Russian invaders, State Duma MP Dmitry Belik stated.

According to him, the Syrians’ visit was confirmed by the President of Syria Bashar Assad and the chosen date is April 18.

“As part of the delegation at the forum in Yalta, the presence of officials not below the rank of the Minister of Economy is expected,” Belik said.

He noted that at the meeting with Assad the issue of the creation of a sea route between Sevastopol and Tartus was discussed and, allegedly, this idea aroused the interest of the Syrian dictator.

The day earlier, Dmitry Sablin, MP of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, said that the children of Bashar Assad in 2017 rested in the camp "Artek". However, Sablin's information was not confirmed either in the press service of Assad or in the Artek camp.

The Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea stated that criminal proceedings may be opened against Assad in connection with the rest of his children in the occupied Crimea in the camp "Artek".
