MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. Symbols of the Far East and Sevastopol city will be portrayed on 200 and 2,000-ruble currency notes, Rossiya 1 TV Channel said on Friday after conclusion of voting on symbols for new notes.
"The Board of Directors of the Central Bank will decide on the city and the region on specific currency notes but all of us certainly remember the "Vladivostok-2000" song [song by Russian rock group Mumiy Troll about the Far Eastern city - TASS]," Chairperson of the Bank of Russia Elvira Nabiullina said in a comment on voting results.
The Bank of Russia initiated the nation-wide selection of symbols for new 200-ruble and 2,000-ruble currency notes at the turn of June. Russians for the first time independently offered and made suggestions on symbols for new notes.
According to the tradition, sights of cities and landmarks are used on modern Russian currency notes. Two cities and four symbols representing history, culture, technical achievements and national wealth of the country are selected. The new notes will appear in circulation already in 2017.
