Andrei Vasilievich Bushkov (Russian: Андрей Васильевич Бушков; born October 13, 1969) is a Russian former pair skater who represented the Soviet Union until its fall, and, after that, Russia. With partner Marina Eltsova, he is the 1996 World champion and a two-time (1993 and 1997) European champion.

Eltsova / Bushkov missed the 1997–1998 Champions Series Final because Bushkov had a groin injury.[1] They withdrew from the 1998 European Championships – Bushkov's right blade broke during the short program.[2] The pair competed at the 1998 Winter Olympics, where they placed seventh. They were coached by Natalia Pavlova in Saint Petersburg.[1]

Before teaming up with Eltsova, he competed internationally with Yulia Liashenko. They were the 1988 World Junior bronze medalists for the Soviet Union.[3]
