Ivan Igorevich Khutorskoy (February 17, 1983, Moscow – November 16, 2009, Moscow) was a RASH skinhead, nicknamed "Bonecrusher,"[1] who was a prominent member of the Russian anti-fascist movement. He was murdered in his home in a suburb of Moscow.

Khutorskoy was known for working security at anti-fascist concerts and at press conferences by Stanislav Markelov. Trained in Sambo and arm-wrestling, Khutorskoy was an experienced street fighter and took part in multiple beatings of people, particularly neo-Nazis, on the streets of Moscow. Videos of some of the beatings were posted online. He also was known for organizing self-defense classes for anti-fascists.

He was shot by a pistol in his own doorway on November 16, 2009. The group Boevaya Organizatsiya Russkih Natsionalistov (BORN, Russian: Боевая организация русских националистов (БОРН))[2][3][4] claimed responsibility for the killing, although several media outlets have questioned the existence of that organization.[5] There are even claims that the entire organization is "purely comic-opera character."[6]
