The Russia national bandy team represents Russia in international bandy.

Until 1991 there was a national bandy team for the Soviet Union, but a team formally representing the Russian SFSR made a one-off appearance at the Rossiya Tournament 1986, also playing against the Soviet Union team.

Russia became a member of the Federation of International Bandy following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, taking over the place of the Soviet Union national bandy team in the next world championship in 1993. Russia has never finished below third in the championships. The team has won the Bandy World Championship for men eight times, in 1999, 2001, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2013, and 2014.

The post-Soviet Russian team made its debut at the Russian Government Cup 1992. The Russians have won the Russian Government Cup eight times. A team "Russia 2" has sometimes appeared in the Russian Government Cup alongside the regular team.
