Russia puts Crimea on new bank note

Thu 12 Oct 2017 at 18:16 International

NNA - Russia on Thursday presented a new bank note that shows images of Crimea, the Ukrainian peninsula annexed by Moscow in 2014.


The note worth 200 rubles ($3.50) shows a naval memorial in the city of Sevastopol, where Russia’s Black Sea fleet is based, and UNESCO-protected Greek and Roman ruins at nearby Chersonesus. The design also includes a map of the peninsula.


The images on the bank note were chosen after a national competition last year to pick symbols of Russia. -- AFP
