MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. The Bank of Russia will release new 200-ruble and 2,000-ruble currency notes with sights of the Far East and Sevastopol for circulation at the turn of 2017, Chairperson of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina told Rossiya 1 TV Channel in an interview broadcast on Friday.
"We are preparing for the currency notes to appear in circulation by the end of 2017," Nabiullina said.
