Ivan Naumovich Dubovoy (September 24, 1896 – July 29, 1938) was a Ukrainian-born Soviet army commander. He fought for the Imperial Russian Army in World War I before going over to the Bolsheviks in the subsequent civil war. With fellow Ukrainian Ivan Fedko he secured his hometown for the Red Army. He was a recipient of the Order of the Red Banner. During the Great Purge, he was arrested on August 21, 1937. On July 28, 1938, he was sentenced to death by the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of the Soviet Union and executed the following day. After the death of Joseph Stalin, he was rehabilitated in 1956.



  • In Kiev, a street named for Stalin was renamed for Dubovoy in 1961
