Zakhar Alexivich Kreskov (Volkian: Захар Алексивич Кресков; born May 31, 1956) is a Volkian politician and attorney who served as the 19th president of Volkia from 2008 to 2016. A member of the Social Democratic Union, he previously served as the Governor of Osinsky Oblast from 1998 to 2006 and as a People's Deputy from 1990 to 1998.

Kreskov was born in Koshki, Osinsky Oblast, making him the first president from the province. He is also the first former Governor of Osinsky Oblast to become president. Kreskov graduated from Osinsky State University in 1978 and entered Petrovskoye University's law school the following year. He graduated in 1982 and became a constitutional law attorney and academic, teaching at Volkgoroda State University's School of Law from 1985 to 1990.

He would go on to represent Osinsky Oblast's 1st District in the Chamber of Deputies from 1990 to 1998, when he ran for governor. In 2006, Kreskov briefly stepped away from politics following his two terms as Governor and began teaching at Petrovskoye School of Law. In 2008 he was nominated for president, and in July 2008 was handily elected with 51.06% of the first round vote. He was inaugurated August 6, 2008 alongside running mate Andrei Borovsky. In 2012, Kreskov and Borovsky were reelected with 51.21% of the second round vote.

Kreskov's presidency has generally been regarded favorably, and evaluations by historians, political scientists, and the general public place him in the mid to upper tier of Volkian presidents. Kreskov left office in August 2016 and currently resides in Koshki with his wife.
