Security features

Security features checked in the transmitted light
Multitone & highlight watermark
The paper has local watermarks on the left and right unprinted areas. The watermark located on the wide unprinted area consists of a multitone watermark (a fragment of the monument to Muravyov-Amursky in the city of Khabarovsk) and a highlight watermark — a numeric value of the denomination (value numeral „5000”). The highlight watermark has lighter elements than the background paper and multitone watermark. In the narrow unprinted area there is a numeric value of the denomination (value numeral 5000).
Microperforation
When the banknote is held up to the source of light, one can view the note denomination „5000” formed by absolutely straight parallel rows of holes perforated in the paper. The area of a banknote with the holes does not feel rough to the touch.
