Mikhail Vasilyevich Ignatyev (Chuvash: Михал Ваçлин ывăл Йăкăнатьев, Mihal Vaślin yvӑl Jӑkӑnatjev; Russian: Михаи́л Васи́льевич Игна́тьев) was a Chuvash politician who served as the Head of the Chuvash Republic, a position that was known as the President of the Chuvash Republic until 2011. On 29 January 2020, Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed Ignatyev and replaced him with Oleg Nikolayev as acting head. This followed a series of scandals in which Ignatyev reportedly humiliated an emergency service worker by dangling keys to a fire truck above them, forcing them to jump to retrieve them, and calling for journalists in the republic to be "wiped out".
Ignatyev died on 18 June 2020 after being hospitalized with COVID-19.
