SuvorovThe engraving on banknote made after this portrait of Suvorov by (probably) George Dawe. Oil on canvas, size 84 х 66. Today is in State Memorial Museum of A.V. Suvorov in Saint-Petersburg.

Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov (Александр Васильевич Суворов, Aleksandr Vasil‘evich Suvorov, 24 November [O.S. 13 November] 1729 or 1730 - 18 May [O.S. 6 May] 1800), Count Suvorov of Rymnik (граф Рымникский), Prince of Italy (князь Италийский), Count of the Holy Roman Empire, national hero of Russia, was the last Generalissimo of the Russian Empire.

Suvorov is one of the few generals in history who never lost a battle, being undefeated in over 60 large battles while always having numerical disadvantage. He was famed for his military manual The Science of Victory and noted for several of his sayings, including "What is difficult in training will become easy in a battle", "The bullet is a mad thing; only the bayonet knows what it is about", and "Perish yourself but rescue your comrade!". He taught his soldiers to attack instantly and decisively: "Attack with the cold steel! Push hard with the bayonet!" He joked with the men, calling common soldiers "brother", and shrewdly presented the results of detailed planning and careful strategy as the work of inspiration.

On the background are gullioshe pattern and micro print: Приднестровье (Pridnestrov'e).

Denominations in numeral and words are centered.

The building of the Supreme Council (not to be confused with the House of the Soviets), though not so significant as the House of the Soviets, but still looks very grand and monumental. It was built in 1983, and the architecture is clearly claimed the palace, at the time.

The building consists of three parts: the central - the most monumental, seven-story with a flag on the roof, and two five-storey wings. The building is decorated with semi-columns, made in different colors uniform scale.

Now it meets the Supreme Council and the Government of Transnistria.

Denominations in numerals are on the left side and in lower right corner. In words lower.
