Council of People's Commissars of the Ukrainian SSR (Ukrainian: Рада Народних Комісарів УРСР) or the Radnarkom (Ukrainian: Раднарком) was the highest governing body of executive power in Ukrainian SSR from January 1919 to 1946. Until 1937 it was also a legislative body as well. The council replaced the Temporary Workers-Peasants Government of Ukraine in January of 1919. In 1919 during the advance of the Denikin's Army (Armed Forces of South Russia) the role of the council was suspended and for a short period it was merged with the Central Executive Committee of Ukraine and leadership of the Communist Party (Bolsheviks) of Ukraine forming the All-Ukrainian Revolutionary Committee.
