Russian Communist Workers' Party – Revolutionary Party of Communists

The Russian Communist Workers' Party – Revolutionary Party of Communists (RKRP-RPK; Russian: "Российская Коммунистическая Рабочая Партия – Революционная Партия Коммунистов", РКРП-РПК; transcription: "Rossiiskaja Kommunističeskaja Rabočaja Partija – Revolyutsionnaja Partija Kommunistov") is a communist party in Russia. It was established in October 2001, through the unification of the Russian Communist Workers' Party and the Russian Party of Communists, with the aim of resurrecting socialism and the USSR.

The RKRP-RPK is led by Viktor Tyulkin ( he was co-chairman with Anatolii Kriuchkov until the latter deceased in 2005 ).

In the 1999 Duma Election, the Party won 2.2% and 1,481,890 votes.

The RKRP-RPK considers the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) to be reformist but in occasion of the 2003 Duma Election the Party leaders decided to make an agreement with the CPRF in order not to disperse the communist vote.

The youth organization of the RKRP-RPK is called RCYL(b) ("Revolutionary Communist Youth League (bolshevik)") and is one of the most active communist youth organizations in Russia. RCYL(b) is led by Pavel Bylevskiy.

It publishes a newspaper "Trudovaja Rossija" ("Трудовая Россия"; "Working People's Russia") and the journal "Sovetskij Sojuz" ("Советский Союз"; "Soviet Union").

The RKRP-RPK claims to have supported all the biggest occupations and strikes in Russia. It has links to the Russian trade union Zashchita.It claims about 55,000 members (2006).
