Carpatho-Russian Labour Party of Small Peasants and Landless (Rusyn: Карпаторусская Трудовая Партия Малоземельных и Безземельных, Karpatorusskaja trudovaja partija malozemelnych i bezzemelnych, Czech: Karpatoruská trudová strana malorolníků a bezzemků) was a political party in Carpathian Ruthenia, Czechoslovakia founded in 1919. The party had a 'Greater Russian' orientation. It was led by Andrey Gagatko, who was elected in 1924 to the parliament. The party published Russkaja zemlja.[1]

The party contested the 1924, 1925 and 1935 elections in electoral coalitions with Czechoslovak socialists. In 1929, the party contested elections as part of an electoral bloc led by the Czechoslovak National Democrats.[1]

The party advocated the separation of Church and state. It was opposed to the Greek Catholic Church and supported Eastern Orthodoxy.[2]
