Pavlo Oleksandrovych Yakovenko (Ukrainian: Павло Олександрович Яковенко) – or Pavel Aleksandrovich Yakovenko (Russian: Павел Александрович Яковенко; born 19 December 1964 in Nikopol, Ukrainian SSR), is a former Ukrainian footballer and USSR international.
Yakovenko's superb build-up play during the mid-1980s made him the starting midfielder for both Dynamo Kyiv and the USSR national football team during their respective successful campaigns of winning the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and advancing to the top 16 in the 1986 FIFA World Cup. However, recurrent injuries had limited Yakovenko's playing time after 1987 and Yakovenko never returned to his earlier form, becoming a bench player at best.
In 1983 Yakovenko took part in the Summer Spartakiad of the Peoples of the USSR in the team of Ukrainian SSR.

Yakovenko also coached several teams from the southern regions of the neighbouring Russian Federation such as Kuban Krasnodar and FC Rostov.
