In the crystal structure of the title compound, [RuF(2)(C(26)H(24)P(2))(2)].2CHCl(3), the Ru atom lies on a centre of symmetry with a trans arrangement of the F atoms. A H...F contact (2.249 A) suggests weak intramolecular hydrogen bonding. The solvent molecules exhibit hydrogen bonding with the F atoms (H...F = 1.91 A).
