Emanuel Kwiring (Kviring) (Ukrainian: Емануіл Йонович Квірінг) (13 September 1888 - 26 November 1937) was a Soviet politician.

Born into a German family in Friesenthal, in the Samara Governorate of the Russian Empire (present-day Novolypovka, Saratov Oblast, Russia), he became a socialist activist and politician (Socialist-Revolutionary Party from 1906 to 1912, and Bolshevik Party beginning in 1912).

After World War I and the Bolshevik Revolution, he was a leader of the Communist Party (Bolsheviks) of Ukraine (October 1918 - March 1919, and April 1923 - March 1925). He was an opponent of the "Ukrainization" policy, so he had to leave Kharkiv for Moscow. Then he worked as an economist in the State Planning Committee (Gosplan). In 1937, he was arrested and executed by NKVD. In 1956, Quiring was posthumously rehabilitated by a decision of the USSR Supreme Court.[1]
