Ion Stepanovici Codreanu (April 14, 1879 in Ştefăneşti, Floreşti, Soroca County – February 15, 1949 in Bucharest) was a Moldovan politician.


In 1917, Codreanu was a founding member of the National Moldavian Party. Soon after, he was elected as a member of the Moldovan Parliament.

After the Soviet invasion of Bessarabia in 1940, he became a political prisoner in USSR, but in May 1941, he was exchanged for the Communist Ana Pauker.[1]
