Evgeni Andreyevich Vasiukov (Russian: Евгений Андреевич Васюко́в, 5 March 1933 – 10 May 2018) was a Russian chess Grandmaster. He was born in Moscow.

During his career, he won the Championship of Moscow on six occasions (1955, 1958, 1960, 1962, 1972, and 1978) and scored many victories in international tournaments, such as Belgrade Open 1961, Moscow International 1961, East Berlin 1962, and Manila 1974.

Vasiukov was rarely at his best in Soviet Championship Finals, which were among the very toughest events in the world. Vasiukov never made the Soviet team for an Olympiad or a European Team Championship.

Vasiukov died of a heart attack on 10 May 2018 in Moscow at the age of 85.[1]
