Yury Ilyich Skuratov (Russian: Ю́рий Ильи́ч Скура́тов; born July 3, 1952) is a Russian lawyer and politician.

Skuratov was born in Ulan-Ude. From 1995 till 1999 he was Prosecutor General of Russia.

In February 1999, he disclosed the existence of FIMACO.[1]

In April 1999, then FSB Chief Vladimir Putin and Interior Minister Sergei Stepashin held a televised press conference in which they discussed a video that had aired nationwide March 17 on the state-controlled Russia TV channel which showed a naked man very similar to Skuratov, in bed with two young women.[2] This video was released after he began looking into charges of corruption by President Boris Yeltsin and his associates and the video itself is said to serve as kompromat.[3]

In 2000 he took part in the Russian presidential elections.
