Vladimir Mikhailovich Dragomirov (1862–1920) was a general in Imperial Russian Army.
He was the son of Mikhail Ivanovich Dragomirov, a prominent Russian General. His brother Abram Dragomirov, was also a general in the Imperial Russian Army.
Vladimir joined the Imperial Army, and in 1909 was District Quartermaster for the Kiev Military District, with the rank of major general. He served as a Tsarist general for most of the First World War. He fought in Galicia and Volhynia in 1916, receiving wounds. In May 1917, following the February Revolution he was put in command of the Northern Front. Five months later Dragomirov succeeded Anton Denikin in command of the Southwestern Front.
Following the Bolshevik October Revolution, Dragomirov aligned himself with the counter-revolution and took up a leadership position among anti-Bolshevik White forces, placing himself at the head of an opposition Bolshevik administration in November 1918, meanwhile working closely with Denikin on the latter's military council.
He was appointed Military Governor at Kiev in October 1919. When Kiev fell to the polish Army the following year, he went missing presumed dead.
