Acting Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Mikhail Degtyarev intends to apply to the Central Bank with a request to preserve the image of the city’s attractions on the five-thousandth banknotes.
He called the monument to Count Nikolai Muravyov-Amursky depicted on the five-thousandth banknotes “a tribute to the memory of ancestors”, and the bridge across the Amur “a symbol of modern achievements”.
Earlier, the Central Bank of Russia announced plans to update the design and improve the protection of all paper banknotes by 2025.
In particular, it is planned to place views of Yekaterinburg on the five-thousandth banknote instead of Khabarovsk.
Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that the Bank of Russia did not consult with the Kremlin on the design of new banknotes and independently makes such decisions.
