The Molochna (Ukrainian: Молочна, Russian: Моло́чная Molochnaya), is a river in the Zaporizhzhia Oblast of south Ukraine. Literally the name of the river translates as Milky. The river is connected with the Russian Mennonite culture, once based in the southeastern region of Ukraine since 1804 as Molotschna colony which was part of the Russian Empire at that time.
In antiquity the river was called Gerrhus or Gerrus (Ancient Greek: Γέρρος).
