Alex Ishchenko (born 20 April 1964) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with West Coast, the Brisbane Bears and North Melbourne in the VFL/AFL.
A ruckman, Ishchenko was born in Perth W.A. and made his VFL debut in 1987 with the inaugural West Coast side. After two seasons at the club he moved to Brisbane and played with the Bears before finishing his career at North Melbourne. He is a part time ruck coach for North Melbourne in the AFL.
His nickname is "The Russian" and this has led to the confusion about his place of birth. His father was born in Ukraine however.
