Dmytro Palamarchuk[1] (Ukrainian: Дмитро Паламарчук, sometimes Dmitri Palamarchuk from Russian: Дмитрий Паламарчук, born December 17, 1979) is a Ukrainian figure skating coach and retired pair skater. With former partner Julia Obertas, he is a two-time World Junior champion (1998, 1999)[2] and two-time Junior Grand Prix Final champion.


At the 2000 World Championships, Obertas and Palamarchuk were 10th after the short program but during the free skate Palamarchuk caught an edge (right skate) while executing an overhead lift with Obertas – she was uninjured in the resulting fall but he hit his head on the ice.[3] No medical attention was immediately offered at the event in Nice, France. Palamarchuk lay on the ice for several minutes before getting up and leaving the ice on his own but then lost consciousness and was taken to hospital – no damage was found but he was kept overnight for observation.[3] Their partnership dissolved after that.

Palamarchuk went on to skate with Tatiana Chuvaeva and Alexandra Tetenko before retiring from competition. He works as a skating coach in Connecticut.[1]
