Russia has competed at the Paralympic Games as different nations in its history. The nation competed as part of the Soviet Union at the 1988 Summer and Winter Games, while after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia competed as part of the Unified Team in 1992. The nation competed for a first time as Russia at the 1994 Winter Paralympics and since then they participated in every summer and winter edition up until the 2014 Winter Paralympics.
2016 Summer Paralympics disqualification
On 7 August 2016, the Russian Paralympic Committee was banned from participating in the 2016 Summer Paralympics and possibly the 2018 Winter Paralympics due to its inability to enforce the IPC's Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Code.
The decision to ban the entire Russian team contrasts the treatment of the Russian Olympic team during the 2016 Summer Olympics, whose members could compete if they had independent certification that they had not used drugs, and were cleared by their sport's respective governing body and an International Olympic Committee panel.
