    GROZNY, January 22 (RIA Novosti) - The size of the compensation for voluntarily surrendered arms, ammunition and explosives has been determined in Chechnya, the presidential press service told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

    Under the new resolution, the Chechen government will pay 8,000-10,000 rubles ($1 = approximately 30 rubles) for grenade launchers, 7,000 rubles for machineguns, 6,000 rubles for sub-machineguns and 5,000-6,000 rubles for pistols, revolvers and carbines.

    The compensation for guided anti-tank rockets is 5,000 rubles, 6,000 rubles for flame throwers, 3,000 rubles for explosive devices and 20 rubles for one gram of trotyl, ammonite, or RDX.

    A participant in the weapons exchange program will receive 3-7 rubles for cartridges and ammunition for firearms, depending on the caliber.

    The resolution on compensations was adopted on Wednesday after a session of the republican government.

    A spokesman for the presidential press service said that apart from receiving compensation, these people would be relieved of the criminal responsibility for keeping arms.
