MOSCOW, June 11. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian government has allocated a support of $110 million for the regions in Siberia which suffer from the flood - the Altai republic and Altai territory, and Khakassiya.

The money will be used for compensations to the people living there and to cover the expenses for temporary accommodations.

The government has ordered to reimburse $7 million the expenses of the state reserve, which were used for the aid in the regions.
