In an interview with radio station “Moscow speaking” Koverdyayev said that the new notes do not fit into the common range of ruble banknotes. In his opinion, they are too reminiscent of the currency of foreign countries.

“Saw a little bit upset, of course (…). The design of this money see a very strong influence of foreign bills. Like a lot of money in different countries”, — said the artist.

Koverdyayev expressed doubt that these bills were developed by the designer, who worked with the author of the existing banknotes by Igor Krylova, who was the chief artist of Gosznak from 1989 to 2002. However, he endorsed the selection of symbols that appear on the new banknotes.

Recall that on the ticket of Bank of Russia with denomination of 200 rubles depicted Tauric Chersonesos and monument to the scuttled ships in Sevastopol, and to bill 2000 rubles – the bridge on island Russian in Vladivostok and Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur region.
