USD/RUB historical data download

Looking for historical data of the USD/RUB currency pair? We have found a source that provides Open-High-Low-Close data for it back until 1995!

The best source for downloading USD/RUB historical data we found so far is Stooq.com.

Stooq.com is a Polish website, but some parts of it is transleted into English. Do not be afraid of it, you can download USD/RUB data without knowing anything about Polish language! (You can also try using Google translate. Google Chrome will offer automatic translation as soon as you visit Stooq.com.)

Note: Second Russian Rouble (RUB) replaced First Russian Rouble (RUR) in 1998-01-01, when 1 RUB was 1000 RUR. This data goes back until 1995, and it seems to contain adjustments for the 1 RUB = 1000 RUR exchange in 1998-01-01, but the best is to check this for yourself.
