Valentiń Lăńkaĺ (Валентіњ Лăњкаљ, born 16 October 1957) is an Adzhatian politician and member of the liberal party A.V.Ŏ.D. He served as the country's first prime minister from 18 June 2004 until his resignation on 7 June 2005, after it became public that he had payed former president and dictator Miheĺ Pjotarśŭn 20 million pekas to step down and leave the country. Mr. Lăńkaĺ was accused of having 'spoiled' the revolution, as it turned out to be money that brought down the dictator instead of the self determination of the Adzhatian people. His downfall didn't calm the protests however and a few days later, both Lăńkaĺ's successor prime minister Pekka Cirpăń and the country's president Ereh Ħĭnzei were sacked by the movement of opposition leader Ăŕva Ośŕoncei.
