New 50 UAH "UNITY SAVES THE WORLD"
 


The commemorative banknote was put into circulation to celebrate the resilience, indomitability, heroism and fortitude of the Ukrainian people, which they show in the fight against Russia's armed aggression. On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, announcing a "special military operation."
