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.

The first time post-Soviet Russia played was at the Russian Government Cup 1992, when Commonwealth of Independent States also participated. CIS was considered the temporary successor of the Soviet team and consequently the number one team. After that tournament, CIS did not play again and in the 1993 world championship, Russia represented the country. Russia has never finished below third in the championships. The team has won the Bandy World Championship ten times, in 1999, 2001, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. If combined with the 14 wins of the Soviet Union team, no country is as successful as Russia in the World Championship.

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.
