BACKGROUNDER

Chechnya is a federal subject of Russia.

The above banknotes were planned to be issued in 1995-08 for the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria but they were never put into circulation, apparently because of the war between Russia and Chechnya.

Notes were signed by Minister of Economy and Finance CRI Taymazov Abubakarov and Chairman of the National Bank of CRI Nazhmudinov Uvaysaevym and were reported to have been developed with active participation of the President of CRI Jawhar Dudayev  BN

It has been reported that the stocks of the 1995 notes were stored in a bank in Grozny then were later destroyed by the Russian military. Additional information is needed on the 1998 notes.

Chechnya uses the Russian Ruble as its official currency, however, the US Dollar and Euro are reported to circulate in parallel.
