Russia - 2,000 rubles

Russia - 2,000 rubles - 2017 - PNL

This newly announced banknote has Spaceport "Vostochny" on the back as well as a rocket. The Vostochny Cosmodrome is a Russian spaceport under construction on the 51st parallel north in the Amur Oblast, in the Russian Far East. When completed in 2018, it is intended to reduce Russia's dependency on the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The first launch took place on 28 April 2016. My guess is that the rocket shown on the banknote is the Soyuz-2 rocket which was launched that day.
