Russian Communist Workers Party

The Russian Communist Workers' Party (in Russian: Российская Коммунистическая Рабочая Партия; transcription: Rossiiskaja Kommunističeskaja Rabočaja Partija or RKRP) was a communist party in Russia. It was established in November 1991 with the aim of resurrecting socialism and the USSR.

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

In February 1993 it was one of a number of Bolshevik groups invited to a conference at which the Kemerovo, defected to the KPRF soon after its establishment.[1]

The party was one of a number of groups barred from taking part in the 1993 Duma elections because they were linked, or perceived to be linked, to the October insurgency of that same year.[2]

In October 2001 it merged with the Russian Party of Communists to form the Russian Communist Workers' Party – Revolutionary Party of Communists.
