The Kuchurhan (Kuchurgan; Ukrainian or Russian: Кучурган; Romanian: Cuciurgan; German: Kutschurgan) is a river in Eastern Europe. It is a tributary of the Dniester which begins on the Podolian Upland in Ukraine. It then flows SSE and forms part of the border between Transnistria in Moldova and the Odessa Oblast in Ukraine. The river is 109 kilometres (68 mi) long and drains 2,090 square kilometres (810 sq mi).
A dam has been built on the river just north of the Dniester, forming the Kuchurhan Reservoir. The village of Kuchurhan in Ukraine is located near the river just north of the reservoir and is the site of an important border crossing into Transnistria.
