Can you help me identify where this money is from? [UPDATE] SUCCESS!

UPDATE! Many commenters and people on Twitter have positively identified the money. In 1912, the Russian Federation honored Peter the Great with a 500 Rubel mark, which was the highest that the Russian Federation had issued up until that point. Kimberly’s comment is to an image on Wikipedia that is the same money.
