ST. PETERSBURG, July 02. /ITAR-TASS/. The Central Bank of Russia (CBR) stated on Wednesday that the regulator did not plan to enlarge the range of Russian national currency banknotes and no new 10,000-ruble banknotes are planned to issue. Current banknotes of 5,000 rubles (around €110 euro according to the current exchange rate) will remain the largest possible banknotes.Meanwhile, banknotes with a new design will be issued with limited circulation for collectors.
The CBR may issue a collection banknote with Crimea’s image “within the current range of banknotes,” First Deputy Governor Georgy Luntovsky told reporters on Wednesday.
In June, the parliamentary faction of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) with its leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky suggested to issue a banknote dedicated to Crimea’s reunification with Russia. CBR Governor Elvira Nabiullina pledged to think over the issue. Lawmakers even proposed a pilot copy of the new banknote “so that Crimea would have not only spiritual ties with us in our thoughts, but also in material terms in our pockets and purses.”
