Russian Roulette is the third mini album by South Korean girl group Red Velvet. It was released on September 7, 2016. The album features 7 tracks, which includes the title track which shares the same name.


Despite earlier reports of Red Velvet having a summer comeback, S.M. Entertainment announced that the group will release a new album in September. After revealing the first teaser on September 1, they announced that the group will release their third mini-album on September 7, with 7 tracks in the album. They revealed the album was to be called "Russian Roulette", the same name as its title track. On September 9th, during the broadcast of the radio show Super Junior's Kiss the Radio, while talking about the difficulties the group faced while preparing for the album, Irene said that it was "physically and mentally tiring as the comeback date kept getting postponed."


Red Velvet held a special countdown to the release of their album through the Naver V app on September 6, just an hour before the release of "Russian Roulette"'s music video and the album. The group began their music show promotions on September 8, on M! Countdown.
