Misspelled Motherland

MOSCOW () -- Russian counterfeiters misspelled the word "Russia" on their false 50,000-ruble bank notes, Itar-Tass reported Thursday.

Local officials discovered the fake bills in Vologda, 400 kilometers north of Moscow.

The forgers left out a letter in the word Russia, which appears prominently at the top of the 50,000-ruble note, worth about $22.
