The Russian entry for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest will be selected through an internal selection.
Originally, the broadcaster had planned a national final format titled Kto? to select their entry. On 1 September 2013, RTR opened the submission period for artists and composers to submit their applications for the selection. Between September and October 2013, it was planned that a special jury would shortlist the applicants to 25 finalists for a televised show on 31 December 2013. However, in December 2013, RTR announced that the selection would be postponed until March 2014 and that the application deadline would be extended until 28 February 2014. Plans for the national final were later abandoned by the broadcaster.
During the semi-final allocation draw on 20 January 2014 at the Copenhagen City Hall, Russia was drawn to compete in the first half of the first semi-final on 6 May 2014. Russia will have to place in the top ten of the first semi-final in order to qualify to compete in the final on 10 May 2014.
