The Union of the Ukrainians of Romania (Romanian: Uniunea Ucrainienilor din Romania, UUR; Ukrainian: Союз Українців Румунії, Soyuz Ukrayintsiv Rumuniyi, SUR) is an ethnic minority political party in Romania representing the Ukrainian community.

History[edit]

The UUR contested the 1990 general elections, and despite receiving only 16,179 votes (0.12%),[2] it won a single seat in the Chamber of Deputies under the electoral law that allows for political parties representing ethnic minority groups to be exempt from the electoral threshold. It has won a seat in every election since.
