Ilya Volodymyrovych Kyva (2 June 1977, Poltava) is a former pro-Russian Ukrainian politician. He is a collaborator with Russia. Member of Parliament of Ukraine of the 9th convocation from the banned pro-Russian political party OPFL (2019-2022). Former member of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Law Enforcement (2019-2022). Advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov and former chairman of the Socialist Party of Ukraine (2017-2019). Former head of the Poltava regional branch of the Right Sector (2014).
He is a psychology teacher and holds a master's degree in law. On 26 April 2021, he defended his dissertation for a PhD in public administration; the circumstances of the dissertation and the defence itself led to a scandal and accusations of dishonesty. On 17 November 2021, Kiva stated that he had been stripped of his PhD degree, and later, in response to a request from Radio Liberty, the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine reported that "as of 23 November 2021, Kiva has not been awarded the degree of Candidate of Science in Public Administration".
He is known for his immoral behaviour (including in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine), Ukrainophobia and admiration for V. Putin. He is a regular on pro-Russian and Russian propaganda TV channels.
Before Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, he fled to Spain in January 2022. In March 2022, he was declared suspected of treason and deprived of his parliamentary mandate by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
