Yodgor Sodiqovna Nasriddinova (26 December 1920 – 7 April 2006) was an Uzbek-Soviet engineer, communist party operative and high ranking member of the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union. After serving in a variety of posts in the Komsomol, she rose through the ranks of the Uzbek SSR and became a deputy in the Supreme Soviet from 1958 to 1974. Between 1959 and 1970, she was the Deputy Chair of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR and subsequently the chair of the Council of Nationalities of the Supreme Soviet until 1974. Purged from the Communist Party in 1988 after the death of Leonid Brezhnev due to ongoing corruption investigations and Uzbek Cotton Scandal, she was soon rehabilitated and restored to party membership in 1991 despite her rivalry with Sharof Rashidov, implication in corruption scandals, and staunch opposition to the Crimean Tatar civil rights movement.
