The USDRUB, or “US dollar – Russian ruble”, is the most popular pair if you trade the Russian currency.

The ruble or rouble (Russian: рубль, rublʹ, plural рубли́, rubli) is the currency of the Russian Federation and the two partially recognized republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

On 4 February 2014, the Unicode Technical Committee accepted U+20BD ₽ ruble sign symbol for the Unicode version 7.0.

Russia is the world's leading oil producer since 2011, and the Ruble is therefore exposed to changes in global energy prices. The Russian economy is both a high growth one and exposed to changes in the global financial markets, which is why it was hard hit by the crisis in 2008 and 2009.
