The Russian government planned to give some 500 million rubles (about 16.2 million U.S. dollars) to Chechnya by the end of 2010 as a compensation for those affected by anti-terrorist operations this year, head of the Chechen government said on Thursday.

Chechen Prime Minister Odes Baisultanov told local media that each family affected by the operations against militant conducted this year would receive 350,000 rubles (around 11,400 U.S. dollars) . The money is to be paid off to the families by the first half of 2011.

According to Chechen authorities, about 75,000 people have received compensation for their lost property since 2003.

The Kremlin has been carrying out its large-scale anti- terrorist operation in Russia's most volatile region of North Caucasus where militants frequently targeted police and residents.

Moscow also has vowed to bring stability to North Caucasus region via improving social services, raising pensions and salaries as a measure to tackle corruption and terrorism infiltration.
