"For Yanukovych!" (Ukrainian: За Януковича) was a political alliance in Crimea (an autonomous republic within Ukraine) between the Party of Regions and the Russian Bloc[1] during the 2006 Crimean parliamentary election.

At the election the alliance won 32.55% of the popular vote and 44 seats out of the 100 seats in the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea (more the 3 times as much as any other contender).[2] However, according to opinion polls, from then its ratings did fall.[3] After the elections members of the alliance tried to remove the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea Anatoliy Hrytsenko also a member of For Yanukovych![4]

In the 2010 Crimean parliamentary election the Party of Regions and the Russian Bloc run separately.[5][6] The Party of Regions won 80 seats during the 2010 election; the Russian Bloc none.[7]
