The Russian Danube Army was a World War I Russian field army that fought on the Romanian Front.

Field management was established in November 1916, when the Dobruja Army was disbanded after the loss of Dobruja to the German-Bulgarian Army under command of August von Mackensen.

The army consisted of:

  • the 47th Russian Army Corps from 1 to 20 October, 1916;
  • the 6th Russian Cavalry Corps from October 28, 1916;

The commander of the Army was General Vladimir Viktorovich Sakharov.

In December 1916, the Army was renamed to the 6th Army and became part of the Russian Romanian Front.
