The Russian government has been resorting to a policy which emphasizes developing the impoverished region in the North Caucasus, where most of the country's rebels and terrorists come from and where the government waged two wars on terror since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

The North Caucasus includes such regions as Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia.

In a quick show of determination, security forces have doubled their presence at major subway stations, airports, railway stations, hospitals, theaters, schools and underpasses.

Police forces have erected roadblocks along highways leading up to Moscow.

Closer surveillance is being paid to migrants from southern provinces of the country.

Within a year from now, special security facilities will equip the country's major public transport hubs, and before 2014, a complex transport security system will be established nationwide to better cope with the terror threats.

In the North Caucasus, however, the Russian government still uses economic development as a preventive measure in its fight against terrorism there.
