The International Viewer's Choice Award for MTV Russia was given out every year from 1999 to 2001. This award was singular in its first year for nominating three Russian artists along with three foreign, English-speaking artists. In 2000 and 2001, though, the number of nominees was reduced to three and only Russian artists were nominated. Rock group Mumiy Troll stands as the category's biggest nominee, having received nominations for it all three years that the award was given out (though coming out empty-handed every single time).
Most peculiarly, though, the award's first presentation in 1999 created a very unique situation in VMA history, as it marked the first time that an artist won more than one International Viewer's Choice. In fact, Ricky Martin won three Viewer's Choice awards that year (though two were for Latin America) and was also in the running for a fourth one (the American one), which was another first. Following is a list of the winners of the International Viewer's Choice Award for MTV Russia.
|1999||Ricky Martin — "Livin' la Vida Loca"||
|2000||Detsl — "Vecherinka"||
|2001||t.A.T.u. — "Ya Soshla S Uma"||
