The Donetsk-Krivoy Rog Soviet Republic (Russian: Донецко-Криворожская советская республика) was a short-lived Soviet Republic founded by Bolsheviks on February 12, 1918. It failed to achieve recognition, either internationally or by the Russian SFSR.

The Donetsk-Krivoy Rog Soviet Republic claimed the territories south of the neighbouring Ukrainian People's Republic, which included the Donbass, Kharkov, Yekaterinoslav, and part of the Kherson Governorates. Another territory claimed was part of the Don Voisko Oblast [1] . In the beginning, the republic's capital was the city of Kharkov, but was later moved to Lugansk.
