Russian Federation participated at the I European Games, which took place in Baku, Azerbaijan from 12 to 28 June 2015. Russia sent sportsmen and women for every sport except athletics, as the level of Russian athletes was too high, according to Russia's Minister of Sports Vitaly Mutko.

Team

Russia sent around 620 athletes, coaches, managers, physicians and masseurs. At an Executive Committee meeting of the Russian Olympic Committee on 21 May, the number of participants was named 367 athletes, 317 of which represent Olympic sports, 40 non-Olympic sports, seven demonstration sports and three Paralympic sports. The final number of athletes was 351 (excluding athletes who competed at the demonstration or Paralympics sports).

Most athletes came from Moscow (97). Also many sportspeople represented the Moscow Oblast (38), St. Petersburg (33), Republic of Tatarstan (17) and Krasnodar Krai (16). Russian athletes competed at all sport types, except athletics, as the level of the Russian team would have been too high, according to Vitaly Mutko. The introduction of the team took place on 3 June 2015 at the sports center Ozero Krugloe. The uniform was made by the Russian company Bosco di Ciliegi.

The flag bearer on the opening ceremony on 12 June 2015 became Olympic Champion, multifold World and European Champion in Wrestling, Khadzhimurat Gatsalov. President of Russia Vladimir Putin attended the opening ceremony. The flag of the European Olympic Committee was held by manifold Gymnastics Champion Elena Zamolodchikova together with seven other people.

The manager of the Russian delegation was Igor Kazikov.
