Marko Ivanovich Voinovich (Russian: Ма́рко Ива́нович Во́йнович, Serbian: Марко Ивановић Војновић/Marko Ivanović Vojnović; 1750–1807) was an Admiral of the Russian Imperial Navy, one of the founders of the Black Sea Fleet.
In 1783 he was appointed the commander of the first battleship of the nascent Black Sea Fleet. In 1785 he became the commander of Sevastopol Squadron. Count Marko Vojnović fought in the Black Sea against the Turkish Navy led by Hassan Pasha in 1788. In the end of 1789-beginning 1790 Vojnović was the Chief of the Black Sea Fleet. Although the Russian Navy won the Battle of Fidonisi under his command, his actions in the Russo-Turkish War (1787–1792) were considered indecisive and he was dismissed from commanding of the Fleet in March 1790.
