Artyom Alexandrovich Anoufriev (born in October 4, 1992) and Nikita Vakhtangovich Lytkin (born in March 24, 1993) (Russian: Артём Александрович Ануфриев и Никита Вахтангович Лыткин) - two serial killers from Irkutsk, Russia.

On April 5, 2011, Anoufriev and Lytkin were arrested in connection with a series of six murders and attacks on local residents in Akademgorodok of Irkutsk.

The attacks, which involved a mallet and knife, began in December 2010. Anoufriev and Lytkin were arrested after a video recording showing the dead body of a woman being mutilated with a knife was found on a camera belonging to Lytkin's uncle, who had become suspicious.

According to media reports, the youths had been influenced by reading about the Alexander Pichushkin and Dnepropetrovsk maniacs (Igor Suprunyuck and Viktor Sayenko) on the Internet. Also, Anoufriev took a part in Russian March of Neo-Nazi.

A psychiatric examination found them to be sane, and they told doctors that they had chosen weak and drunk people as their victims. The court case against Anoufriev and Lytkin is scheduled to begin after the completion of the investigation by March, 2012. On 2 April 2013, Anoufriev was sentenced to life imprisonment and Lytkin to 24 years.
