Bank of Russia has issued today the new banknote commemorative of the 2018 FIFA World Cup (RUB100.5). It is the first ever Russian polymer banknote.

The front shows  a boy dreaming to repeat the achievements of great football players, like Lev Yashin, a famous goalkeeper. The back shows the globe in the form of a football, with the territory of the Russian Federation outlined.
