New Russian banknote marks annexation of Crimea

According to reports of the TASS news agency, a 100 ruble banknote commemorating Moscow's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 will appear in Russia next month.
This comes as an act of defiance against world opinion. 

Russia's annexation of Crimea followed the ouster of Ukraine's pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych in 2014, and has been widely condemned as an illegal act by world leaders. This, and a prolonged fighting between Ukraine and Russian-backed separatists in the east of the country, has led to the imposition of a series of economic sanctions against Russia.
