Tatyana Petrenko-Samusenko (Russian: Татьяна Дмитриевна Петренко-Самусенко; 2 November 1938 – 24 January 2000) was a Soviet fencer. She won gold medlas in the team foil event at the 1960, 1968 and 1972 Summer Olympics.

In 1962 Petrenko-Samusenko received a degree in engineering from a technical university in Minsk. In retirement she worked as a fencing coach. She was awarded the Order of the Badge of Honour, Medal "For Distinguished Labour" and Medal "For Labour Valour".

In March 1996, while her flat was being robbed, Petrenko-Samusenko jumped from a second-floor balcony. A rough landing resulted in multiple fractures in her spine and legs. She never recovered, and died in January 2000.
