Lenino (Russian: Ленино(Камчатка)) is a former air base in Kamchatka Krai, Russia located 11 km west of Lenino. It is a large abandoned military base 120 km west of Petropavlovsk, and may have been designed for Tupolev Tu-16 operations during the 1950s and 1960s. It appears to have been abandoned in the 1970s.
