Voltaic Revolutionary Communist Party (Parti communiste révolutionnaire voltaïque, PCRV) is a communist party in Burkina Faso. It was founded on 1 October 1978, following a split in the Voltaic Communist Organization (OCV). PCRV followed the political line of the Albanian Party of Labour, anti-revisionist Marxism-Leninism. It promoted 'National Democratic and Popular Revolution' (RNDP).

PCRV did not support the revolutionary government of Thomas Sankara. This led to a split and the formation of the Burkinabè Communist Group.

PCRV publishes Bug-Parga.

PCRV is an active participant in the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations (Unity & Struggle).
