Rumyantsevo is a Moscow metro station and the first station located on the territory of New Moscow (Moskovsky settlement), located on the Sokolnicheskaya line, between the Troparevo and Salaryevo stations. It is located outside the Moscow Ring Road at the northern side of the Kievskoe highway, adjacent to the Rumyantsevo business park, named after the nearby village of the same name. The station was opened on January 18, 2016.

The station was first mentioned in the 1971 General Plan. Its construction was supposed to connect with Moscow the planned South Station, which was proposed to be built to unload the Kursk station. But the project of the station was rejected, and the need for the station disappeared. The Rumyantsevo depot was also planned behind the station, the need for which is due to the fact that both depot depots are located in the north of the Sokolnicheskaya line (the Stolbovo depot is currently under construction). In the late 1980s, the station was supposed to be built as part of a chord line along Leninsky Prospekt. After the abandonment of the existing chord projects, the station returned to the Sokolnicheskaya line; according to the General Plan of 2009, its construction was set aside for 2025.

In connection with the expansion of the territory of Moscow in 2011-2012, the demand for the station increased, and the commissioning of the section was planned for 2014, however, the station was not opened within the specified period, the delivery dates were first postponed to May 2015, then to December. On December 31, the technical launch of the station took place, and the opening of traffic for passengers took place on January 18, 2016. With the opening of Rumyantsevo, there are 199 stations in the Moscow metro.

It was the shortest in terms of length of stay in the entire history of the Moscow Metro (28 days), before the extension of the line to Salaryevo station, opened on February 15 of the same year.
