Anatoliy Alekseevich Nogovitsyn (Russian: Анатолий Алексеевич Ноговицын; born 29 April 1952 in Baryshevka village, Borodilikhinskiy rayon, Semipalatinsk oblast, Kazakh SSR) is the former Deputy Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Colonel General, most known for being the primary spokesman of the Russian Armed Forces during 2008 South Ossetia War and for warning Poland about the possibility of a nuclear strike on 15 August 2008 after an agreement reached between the United States of America and Poland on 14 August 2008 about hosting part of a US missile defense shield in Poland. President Dmitry Medvedev later played down the nuclear attack threats against Poland.


In 1973 he graduated with honors from Armavir Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots (Russian: Армавирское высшее военное авиационное училище лётчиков).

In 2012, he was dismissed, officially for age reasons.
