- Borys Tukhai-bei("Boris Skoropadsky") (b. 1956 in Canada) – Alleged natural son of the unmarried Danylo Skoropadsky, as such allegedly grandson of Pavlo, and nephew of Olena Skoropadska-Ott. Claims to have been registered by his mother Oleksandra (Olesya) under her mother’s surname, Tukhai-bei, and that he did not learn about his presumptive Skoropadsky heritage until 1999. Borys Tukhai-bei is not recognized by the living members of the Skoropadskyi family; a natural descent from Danylo Skoropadskyi is as yet to corroborate. Nevertheless, Borys Tukhai-bei has been traveling to Ukraine identifying himself as "Boris Skoropadskiy", referring to Danylo and Pavlo Skoropasdkyi as his father and grandfather, respectively. Olena Skoropadska-Ott, however, denies all the allegations stating that there is no relationship between her and that man.
