We always get some local currency in advance. Not a lot, just enough to cover small purchases. We use a credit card for the rest (not that we make many large purchases overseas). I did note that rubles, U.S. dollars, and euro were accepted in tourist-oriented gift shops in Russia, although only rubles were accepted elsewhere in Russia, such as in the markets.
