New Russian banknotes can appear the meteorite and the kitten

CB conducted the first national poll to determine what images will be posted on the new banknotes with denomination of 200 and 2000 rubles. In the next stage of the competition took 76 characters of the 49 cities that gave their clicks more than 1 million users. While leading a provincial town. Apparently, there are people interested to the places where they live, learned more people.

The contest rules are not complicated. On the website Your-Russia.Russia proposed the symbol was in the list of applicants, if you gained 5 thousand votes. In the end, among the leaders of the vote was the Vladivostok Bridge on the Russian island and Golden bridge, Volgograd with the sculpture “the Motherland calls!”, Derbent fortress Naryn-Kala”, Irkutsk, Baikal, the Kerch the construction of a bridge across the Kerch Strait, Sochi Olympic stadium “fischt” and Rosa Khutor, Vladimir with Golden gates and assumption Cathedral Kolomna with local Kremlin.

Barely overcame the threshold of five thousand mountain Green in the heart of the ski resort Sheregesh in the Kemerovo region, as well as a cinema “Victory” in Leninsk-Kuznetsk. These objects can be called outsiders.

Among the figures which I propose to draw on bills is quite clear — for example, the Kazan Kremlin or the Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra, and there are unexpected: a monument to the kitten from lizyukov street in Voronezh or Chelyabinsk meteorite.

But this is only the first step. Until the end of August, the Fund “Public opinion” will hold the appropriate live poll throughout Russia, from Sakhalin to Kaliningrad to select “the best”. Sociologists will determine the top ten most popular cities and 20 characters. Finally, on October 7 the citizens in a live broadcast of the state TV channels will choose the winner via sms.

Russians are encouraged by the news that they can offer the characters. – said in a press release the Chairman of the Central Bank Alexander Torshin. – In addition, we received our mail – electronic or conventional – thousands of letters with requests to consider certain objects. People sent me sketches, drawings and collages of future banknotes with images of attractions and places of their cities and regions. This shows the great interest in the competition.”

“Actually, it’s an interesting idea CB. – says adviser on macroeconomics General Director of a DB “Opening” Sergey hestanov. – However, I am surprised that among the leaders were not terrible, although the list passed to the second round, as far as I know, he is present. In Chechnya are able to organize a popular vote. But not yet evening. Front, second and third rounds. As for the favorites, it seems to me that since banknotes in 200 and 2000 thousand rubles in contemporary Russia, it will eventually choose quite an unexpected options. One of them may be associated with the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Why not.
