Fantom (in Russian Фантом) was the title of the Russian Phantom comic book that was published by Semif from 1992 to 1993.

The Swedish publisher Semic established several new publishing companies in various European countries in the late 1980s and early 1990s, in cooperation with local publishers. "The Phantom" was one of the comics that Semic introduced to new markets.

The Russian Fantom series was published in full color. Covers were taken from the Swedish Fantomen comic book, and the contents were daily/Sunday stories by Lee Falk (in edited versions, as they had previously appeard in Fantomen) and in the last issue one Team Fantomen story. Starting in the third issue was "The Phantom Legends", a series of one-page retellings of important parts of the Phantom legend. This had also appeared in Fantomen previously. At total of four issues were published.

The Russian Fantom had the exact same covers and contents as the first issues of the Czech Fantom, the Slovak Fantóm and the Polish Fantom, but published them in a different order.
