The Russky Bridge The Russky Bridge

In the center is the Russky Bridge, with cars on it and a ship under it, a flying gull above the bridge, as well as a stylized image of the Russian bridge against the background of the sun and waves.

The Russky Bridge (Russian: Русский мост, Russian Bridge) is a cable-stayed bridge in Vladivostok, Primorsky Krai, Russia. The bridge connects the Russky Island and the Muravyov-Amursky Peninsula sections of the city across the Eastern Bosphorus strait, and with a central span of 1,104 meters (3,622 feet) it is the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world. The Russky Bridge was originally built to serve the 2012 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference hosted at the Far Eastern Federal University campus on Russky Island. It was completed in July 2012 and opened by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, and on September 3, 2012, the bridge was officially given its name.

The bridge to Russky Island is the world's longest cable-stayed bridge, with a 1104 m long central span.

The bridge also has the second highest pylons after the Millau Viaduct and the longest cable stays.

The design of the bridge crossing has been determined on the basis of two primary factors:

Shortest coast-to-coast distance in the bridge crossing location 1460 meters. Navigable channel depth is up to 50 meters.

The locality of the bridge crossing construction site is characterized by severe climate conditions: temperatures vary from -31 °C to 37 °C; storms bring winds of up to 36 m/s and waves of up to 6 meters in height; and ice formations in winter can be up to 70 cm. thick.

Minister of Transport Igor Levitin described the bridge to the Russian Island as the most unique and complex facility, not only in preparation for the APEC summit, but also in the whole practice of bridge construction in Russia and in the world.

The general designer is "NGO Mostovik". The general contractor for the construction - "USK MOST", subcontractors of construction - "SK Most", "NGO Mostovik." The bridges for the bridge are made by the French company "Freyssinet". The architectural lighting project, functional lighting and power supply of the bridge are realized by the lighting company "MT Elektro". Construction control was carried out by the Institute "Stroiproject".


On the right and left are the main campus building (Humanitarian building) of the Far Eastern Federal University (right) and the building (presumably - the natural-science building) next to it (on the left).

Far Eastern Federal University (Russian: Дальневосто́чный федера́льный университе́т, Dalnevostochny federalny universitet) is a university located in Vladivostok, Primorsky Krai, Russia.

The construction of the new campus began in April 2009, the general contractor of the construction was the company "Crocus", owned by Russian businessman Aras Agalarov. The built-up area is 200 hectares., The area of ​​the erected real estate is 500 thousand m².

Campus hostels are designed for 11,000 students and teachers:

The northern group of hotel-type buildings (dormitory), which includes 5 buildings of the first type (closer to the sea) and 3 buildings of the second type (closer to the outer road arch);

The southern group of buildings (hostel) - 3 buildings.

Educational buildings are located in the center of the campus: a humanitarian building and a natural-science building. Between these buildings is an 11-storey Student Center for student associations and organizations. This center will house a conference hall for 900 seats, all necessary infrastructure services, as well as shops, clubs, cafes. To the left of the humanitarian building is a sports block, which includes several swimming pools, indoor tennis courts and various sports grounds for athletics.

The landscape park and sports zone of the campus occupy 54 hectares. The park is surrounded by squares and small architectural forms, pedestrian and bicycle paths cross the entire campus. In the northern part of the campus there is a sports zone: an open stadium for several thousand seats, tennis courts, a volleyball court. The main attraction of the campus is the embankment, 1300 m long, stretching along the bay of Ajax. The pier is designed for mooring small pleasure boats, boats and yachts.

The university moved to a new campus in July-August 2013, in 2012 the relocation was not held because the contractor did not put the campus into operation, as planned in advance. In February 2013, 90% of the campuses of the FEFU on Russian (all buildings are leased, except the laboratory building and the medical center). On July 1, 2013 the FENU Medical Center was put into operation. September 1, 2014 commissioned laboratory building.

Vostochny Cosmodrome

In the center is the launch complex of the Vostochny cosmodrome.

The Vostochny Cosmodrome (Russian: Космодром Восточный Kosmodrom Vostochny "Eastern Spaceport") is a Russian spaceport under construction on the 51st parallel north in the Amur Oblast, in the Russian Far East. When completed in 2018 at an estimated cost of $7.5 billion USD, it is intended to reduce Russia's dependency on the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The first launch took place on 28 April 2016 at 02:01 UTC. As of February 2018, three rockets were launched from the cosmodrome, including one that failed.

Vostochny (which means "eastern" in Russian) is in the Svobodny and Shimanovsk districts of Amur Oblast in the Russian Far East, on the watershed of the Zeya and Bolshaya Pyora rivers, approximately 600-800 km. (370-500 mi.) from the Pacific Ocean, depending on launch azimuth. The planned total area is 551.5 km2, being a region approximately 30 km. in diameter centered on 51.884395°N 128.333932°E Coordinates: 51.884395°N 128.333932°E. The nearby train station is Ledyanaya and the nearest city is Tsiolkovsky. The cosmodrome's latitude, 51° north, means that rockets will be able to carry almost the same amount of payload as they can when launched from Baikonur at 46°N. Other arguments for choosing this location include the ability to use sparsely populated areas and bodies of water for the rocket launch routes; proximity to major transportation networks such as the Baikal–Amur Mainline, the Chita–Khabarovsk Highway; abundance of electricity production resources in the area; and the infrastructure supporting the former Svobodny Cosmodrome, on which the new spaceport will be based. The site's location in the Russian far eastern region allows for easier transport of materials to the site, and allows rockets to jettison their lower stages over the ocean. It was expanded as part of the plan of modernization of the supporting infrastructure. Putin said that among places offered was an area on the shore of the Pacific Ocean, near Vladivostok, but that experts recommended not to locate it there since the proximity to the ocean can create problems and delays in launches, and as a result the current place was chosen.

Far Eastern Federal District

On right side is the Far Eastern Federal District. On the alleged error on the banknote, please read in the "Comment" section.

The Far Eastern Federal District (Russian: Дальневосто́чный федера́льный о́круг, Dalnevostochny federalny okrug) is the largest of the eight federal districts of Russia but the least populated, with a population of 6,293,129 (74.8% urban) according to the 2010 Census.

The Amur leopard is at the bottom, left.

The Amur leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) is a leopard subspecies native to the Primorye region of southeastern Russia and the Jilin Province of northeast China. It is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List. In 2007, only 19-26 wild Amur leopards were estimated to survive. As of 2015, fewer than 60 individuals were estimated to survive in Russia and China. As of 2018, the population in the wild has climbed to around 103 individuals thanks to intense conservation efforts. The Amur leopard is the rarest big cat on Earth.

The Amur leopard is also known as the Far Eastern leopard. In 2017, the Cat Classification Task Force of the Cat Specialist Group subsumed P. p. japonensis to P. p. orientalis.

Denominations in numerals are in top left and lower right corners. In words - at the bottom.



Banknotes were printed in Perm. (Комсомольская правда .rus)

Also, on banknotes there are the following security elements (listed some of the additional security features inherent in all banknotes in nominal value of 2000 rubles of the 2017 sample):

relief elements, felt by the fingers of the front side: triple strokes along the edges, dark and color-alternating figures "2000", inscriptions "TICKET OF THE BANK OF RUSSIA" and "TWO THOUSAND RUBLES";

elements with optical variable effects on the front side:

 - color-alternating inscription on the front side: when looking at an acute angle to the plane of the banknote, the colors of the figures of one of the three denominations "2000" (on a monotonous shaded background with the contour inscription "RUSSIA") change;

 - in the stylized image of the Russian bridge against the background of the sun and waves, a reflective colored ring against the sun's background "moves" depending on the viewing angle;

 - a hidden image of the symbol of the ruble with a CIPP effect, a dark or light symbol becomes visible on a light or dark background when viewed at an acute angle to the plane of the banknote from different sides;


When you change the viewing angle, every digit of 2000 numbers move in different directions, at some viewing angles each 2000 number is replaced by two symbols ₽ on a rainbow background.


Background images are formed by microtexts ВЛАДИВОСТОК, 2000РУБЛЕЙ, 2000, БАНКРОССИИ, КОСМОДРОМВОСТОЧНЫЙ and graphic microelements on the themes of the cosmos (spacesuit, stars, planets, etc.), flora and fauna of the Far East (parts of plants, animals), seas (helmets, seagulls, boat, etc.)

Some media reported that on the October 12, 2017 banknote, denominated in 2000 rubles, Sakhalin, allegedly, is connected by an isthmus with the mainland of Russia and looks like a peninsula. This information also caused controversy and discussion in social networks. In Goznak said that there is no mistake and on the bill Sakhalin is separated from the mainland, writes TASS.

The message of the press service of Goznak: "The width of the Nevelskiy strait between the mainland and the island of Sakhalin is 7.3 kilometers." On the scale of the image on a banknote with a face value of 2000 rubles, it will be about 0.08 millimeters. "However, in the design of banknotes and the polygraphic version, the image of Nevelskoy the strait and the Amur estuary.In the design of the banknote, the geographical image of the mainland and the islands of our country is highlighted with a white outline, which is necessary for a clearer perception of the image on the banknote as a whole. the white contours of the continent and the islands merge, this does not prevent seeing that the green images of the mainland and the islands of Sakhalin do not unite with each other."
