Addressing the participants of the shift with a parting word, the director of Artek Konstantin Fedorenko said:

During the 08 day in Artek you learned a lot new, acquired new skills, showed their best qualities and abilities, got acquainted with the cultural traditions of different countries. And most importantly — and I am sure of this — a genuine, sincere friendship was born between you. I want each of you to turn to your heart and remember the words of the Fox from The Little Prince. He said, “Only the heart is vigilant. You can’t see the most important thing with your eyes.” Artek residents, turn to your sharp-sighted hearts, ask yourself the question: can you carry the main words through your whole life: “Artek residents today — Artek residents always.” Remember: our strength is in unity!
