The Communist Party of Workers and Peasants (Ukrainian: Комуністична партія робітників і селян, Komunistychna Partiya Robitnykiv i Selyan) is a political party in Ukraine, formed in 2001 following a split from the Communist Party of Ukraine (KPU). The first chairman of the party was Oleksander Mykolayovych Yakovenko. At the legislative 2002 elections the party won 0.41% of the popular vote and no seats.[1] Since then it has not taken part in any nationwide election yet.[1] In 2011, the current Chairman of KPRS Leonid Grach wa elected as the head of the party in February 2011; at the time he was member of the Ukrainian parliament.[2][3] Grach did not return to parliament after the 2012 Ukrainian parliamentary election after losing as an independent candidate in single-member districts number 2 (first-past-the-post wins a parliament seat) located in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.[4]
