Vladimir Alexandrovich Torlopov (Russian: Влади́мир Алекса́ндрович То́рлопов; Komi: Володь Ӧльӧксан Торлопов, Volod Öljöksan Torplopov; born 1949) is a Russian politician, who was the president of the Komi Republic,[1] a federal subject of Russia. In December 2001, he won elections with 40% of the vote, defeating incumbent President Yury Spiridonov resulting in Spiridonov becoming one of few incumbent administrative division leaders in Russia to be defeated between the period 1991-2005 when these leaders were directly elected. Torlopov took office in January 2002 and left on 15 January 2010.

In 1995 he became Chairman of the State Council of the Komi Republic.

On October 6, 2016 it has been under house arrest for the creation and leadership of a criminal association in conjunction with the "grouping" Gayzer and fraud on a large scale using his official position. Torlopov pleaded guilty.[2][3]
