The Marxist–Leninist Party of Ukraine is a revolutionary Maoist party established in Ukraine between the end of 2004 and the beginning of 2005. Its Chairman is Arthur Ryabchenko.

The MLPU was established because its members don't agree with the current communist parties in Ukraine, that they call revisionists (many of them is inspired by Leonid Brezhnev's Soviet Union). Domestically, the Party tries to reevaluate Joseph Stalin's work and thought and fights against the bourgeois government. They consider the USSR after Stalin and China after Mao Zedong revisionist countries. The Party ideological line is Marxism-Leninism-Maoism.

Since its establishment, the MLPU set close links with the Italian Marxist-Leninist Party, translating and publishing some of Giovanni Scuderi's works. Ryabchenko also wrote on Il Bolscevico.
