Yury Ivanovich (; 1480–1536) was second surviving son of Ivan the Great by Sophia of Byzantium. Since 1519, his appanages included Dmitrovskoe knjazevstvo.

When his elder brother Vasily III ascended to the throne, Yury was 24 years old. Like his other brothers, he was forbidden to marry until Vasily could produce an heir and even then he was not allowed to marry without the ruler's permission. For Yury Ivanovich this permission never came because after his brother's death in 1533 his widow and regent for the young Ivan IV Elena Glinskaya began to suspect Yury.

Not long after that Yuri was arrested and put in prison where he died in 1536.
