Russia plans to issue a banknote dedicated to Crimea, a senior central bank official Georgy Luntovsky announced.

"We plan to issue a banknote dedicated to Crimea, but it will be a banknote of the denominations already in circulation," – Luntovsky noted.

It was not immediately clear what the Crimea banknote would look like, Luntovsky earlier suggested it should depict monuments in Crimea, including those in Sevastopol where Russia's Black Sea fleet is based.

Russia annexed Crimean peninsula in March, following the referendum on the region’s status.
