The Bank of Russia will begin purchasing the Australian dollar for its gold and foreign exchange reserves by the year-end, The Wall Street Journal reports. The existing ruble trading band rests at between 32.70 and 37.70 compared to a basket of dollar and euro.

The Russian currency is kept in a 5-ruble wide trading band against the dollar-euro basket. The central bank sells the foreign currency when it weakens and buys it when the Russian currency looks up.
