The Cultural Union of Ruthenians of Romania (Romanian: Uniunea Culturală a Rutenilor din România, UCRR; Rusyn: Културне Товариство Русинів Романії, Kultulrne Tovarystvo Rusyniv Romaniji) is an ethnic minority political party in Romania representing the Rusyn community.
The AIR was established in 2000. It contested the 2000 general elections, and despite receiving just 6,942 votes (0.06%), it won a seat in the Chamber of Deputies under the electoral law allowing political parties representing ethnic minority groups to be exempt from the electoral threshold as long as they received 10% of the vote required for a single seat in the Chamber of Deputies.
The party has won a seat in every election since.
