Relations between the two countries were established in 1698 by Ramon Perellos y Roccaful, the Grand Master of the Order of St. John, exactly a century before the Order's expulsion from Malta.[1]

From 1799 to 1800, the Russian Empire supported Maltese rebels against the French occupation of Malta.[2]
