Pavlo Andriyovych Holovaty (Ukrainian: Павло Андрійович Головатий; 1715–1795) was a Ukrainian military figure, a Kosh Otoman of the Zaporozhian Sich and last military judge of the Zaporozhian Cossack Host. He is often confused with his younger brother, the leader of the Zaporozahian Host's successor the Black Sea Cossack Host Antin Holovaty.
With the destruction of the Zaporozhian Sich in 1775, many of the more senior Cossacks were repressed by the Russian government. Pavlo was one of those arrested with the last Zaporozhian koshovy Petro Kalnyshevsky. Both Holovaty and Kalnyshevsky spent a year incarcerated in Moscow, and were given death sentences which was later commuted to lifetime incarceration.
His brother Antin Holovaty was able to bypass these repressions, however they impacted his further activities.[who?]
