MOSCOW, April 2 (RIA Novosti) - Moscow authorities will spend 100 million rubles ($4.2 million) to disperse rain clouds and guarantee blue skies over the May holidays, a source in the city administration said Wednesday.

Moscow authorities plan to use environmentally friendly and harmless chemicals to clear clouds and prevent rain. Last year the Russian Air Force dispersed clouds above the city using liquid nitrogen, silver compounds and cement powder.

"A total of 98.9 million rubles will be allocated from the city budget to guarantee good weather in Moscow on May 7-9 Victory Day and City Day [the first weekend in September]," the source said.
