The Rural Municipality of Russell is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on August 15, 1881.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the Town of Russell and the Village of Binscarth to form the Municipality of Russell – Binscarth.[2]

The former RM is located in the Parkland Region of the province adjacent to the Gambler 63 First Nations Indian reserve to the south. It had a population of 661 according to the Canada 2006 Census.
