Vitaly Leontiyevich Mutko (born 8 December 1958) is a Russian politician who has served as Deputy Prime Minister of Russia since 2016. He was the Minister of Sport from 2008 to 2016. Mutko was previously president of the Russian side FC Zenit Saint Petersburg, and is also the President of the Russian Football Union.

Mutko accompanied the Russian team to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010. Afterwards, a report by the Russian parliament's Audit Chamber criticised him for claiming for a total of 97 breakfasts during the team's twenty-day stay in Canada, costing a total of $4,500. Each night in his hotel was charged at $1,499. In total, Mutko is said to have spent twelve times his official limit. Mutko told Vedomosti newspaper: "Why do those who want to accuse me of something not interest themselves in how much the French sports minister paid for accommodation?"

On 9 November 2015, a report by an independent commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency accused Mutko of likely complicity in a wide-ranging, doping scheme within Russian track and field. Dick Pound, the head of the commission, said, "It was impossible for him [Mutko] not to be aware of it. And if he’s aware of it, he’s complicit in it." It was further alleged that Mutko's agency had undue influence over RUSADA, the Russian anti-doping agency that should operate independently from influence of government or athletes.
