Valentina Zimina (1 January 1899 – 3 December 1928) was a silent screen actress.

Russian-born, the daughter of a Moscow stage actress, Zimina served with the Women's Battalion of Death for three years. She was in a Siberian prison, from which she escaped and made her way across Asia and onto Hollywood. The rest of her family were killed in the Russian Civil War. She made her screen debut opposite Bessie Love and Warner Baxter in Victor Fleming's A Son of His Father, followed by five more 1920's romantic melodramas. Zimina died of influenza just before her last film was released.
