I heard that shouldn't be a problem. But AFAIK, you'll need to get some rubles at the border.
Don't put the money in your wallet, in case you need to bribe the police (don't know if that's still the case these days) they can't see the large amounts of cash, and make their eyes twinkle
I'm planning a trip from Belgium to Norway, then via Murmansk to Saint-Petersburg back to Belgium. It should happen in 2015...
