Ruble symbol?

At I see a
price in rubles, 31,500 р, where the currency is written р (Cyrillic r).
But that р is displayed as a capital Р (Cyrillic R) with stroke.
I’ve never been in Russia. That’s why I have a few questions:
Is that symbol is in everyday use?
Is it common?
Is it new?
Why doesn’t Unicode support it yet?

Thanks for the answers.
