    Very interesting, for several reasons. Why did they want to make such a note in a occupied country?

    10 Karbowanez ( Ukr - 'Karbovanets' ) = 1 Reichmark.

    I believe it was just that - The Germans were the occupying
    Government - 'Reichkommissariat'.........

    For much the same reasons that the Allies immediately introduced new banknotes in occupied Germany at the end of WW2 in that the currency had to be changed quickly in order to impress on the population that the old regime is gone and that it will not be coming back. Currency and banknotes are one of the defining features of a state and its government. Germany also introduced new banknotes for other occupied territories. Cheers, Torsten.

    I just found it interesting because i know of a "few" countries where the Germans did not do this, my own country Denmark among them. But then again our government also cooperated with the TR.

    You are correct. It was not done for most countries that Germany occupied, but a few did get new money. I do not know what factors determined on whether new money was to be issued or not. Would be interesting to know if there were some kind of rules or guidelines about this? Cheers, Torsten.
