Tymko (Tomasz) Padura also Padurra (1801 – 1871 in Illintsi, Ukraine) was a Ukrainian-Polish Romantic poet of the so-called Ukrainian school, musician-torbanist, and composer-songwriter.

Padura's ballad of Ustym Karmaliuk "Beyond Siberia The Sun Rises" (За Сибіром Сонце Сходить) achieved extraordinary popularity in 19th century Ukraine. It became a folk-song. His song "Hej Sokoły (song)" is very popular in both Ukraine and Poland.
