Is there any way? I'm trying to press and hold a letter Р in russian layout (similar to Е for typing euro symbol €), but nothing happens.

It seems to me there's no way to type the rouble symbol on the default Russian virtual keyboard. I looked at /usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/jolla/layouts/ru.qml (the file containing all the key mappings for the Russian keyboard) and I can't see the rouble symbol there.

The symbol is quite new (introduced in December 2013), so my guess is the Russian layout in Sailfish hasn't (yet) been updated with the symbol.

Actually, I think the system font used in Sailfish doesn't have the rouble symbol. Looking at your question on Jolla shows just a gray square in place of the rouble symbol in your question title.

Now it is placed on the second numeric layout near with other currency symbols. But advisable to have it on a Russian Р letter like € on E too.
