Mikhail Porechenkov (Russian: Михаил Пореченков, born 2 March 1969, Leningrad, Soviet Union)[1] is a Russian film actor, producer, director. In 2008, Porechenkov produced, directed and starred in D-Day (День Д), a Russian remake of the 1985 American action film Commando.[2]

In October 2014, Porechenkov was wanted by Ukrainian authorities for allegedly engaging in terrorist activities in Donetsk.[3] Porechenkov was filmed firing a heavy weapon while wearing protective clothing with 'Press' markings.[3][4][5] Ukrainian officials said they would charge him with "participation in terrorist activities of the so-called DNR" and participation in activities of "armed gangs."[3]

According to the separatist commander Givi, Porechenkov was firing at scrap metal, not at Ukrainian soldiers.[6]
