Andrei Sychevoi (born May 16, 1969) is a Russian military officer and Lieutenant General of the Russian Armed Forces.
On 20 July 2022 during the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, Sergei Shoigu, the Minister of Defence of Russia, appointed Sychevoi commander of Russian forces of the Western Military District, replacing Colonel General Alexander Zhuravlyov, who was removed after the initial phases of the war. Sychevoi was reportedly dismissed from the post by 4 September 2022.
In early September 2022, it was speculated that Sychevoi had been captured by Ukrainian forces in Kharkiv. It was believed by some to be Sychevoi due to the captured officer looking similar in appearance. However it was never fully proven or determined to in fact be Sychevoi who was captured.

[Yesterday, September 4, Ukrainian journalist Roman Tsymbalyuk published a post on his Telegram channel page about Russian generals who were dismissed from service. We are talking about the top generals whom Putin trusted and strongly believed in, starting his "special operation" against Ukraine in February 2022. Against this background, General Andrey Sychevoi stands out, who at one time went through the war in Syria, but during the war in Ukraine he did not cope with the task and was dismissed from the post of commander of the Western Military District. He is 53 years old.]
