Virgil Ierunca in 1994

Virgil Ierunca (Romanian pronunciation: [virˈd͡ʒil jeˈruŋka]; born Virgil Untaru [unˈtaru]; August 16, 1920, Lădești, Vâlcea County – September 28, 2006, Paris) was a Romanian literary critic, journalist and poet. He was married to Monica Lovinescu.

Both Ierunca and Lovinescu worked for several decades for Radio Free Europe.

In 2006 both were members of the Romanian Presidential Commission for the Study of the Communist Dictatorship in Romania; the Commission's chairman, Vladimir Tismăneanu, called them "the most honest and dignified couple in the history of Romanian culture".
