Aleksandr Viktorovich Tikhonovetsky ( ; born April 11, 1979 in Nakhodka) is a Russian football player. Currently he plays for FC Luch-Energiya Vladivostok.

He made his debut in the Russian Premier League in 2001 with PFC CSKA Moscow.

He is a nephew of former FC Okean Nakhodka and FC Lokomotiv Moscow player Oleg Garin (who is considered the most well known Okean player ever) and until 2004 was known as Aleksandr Garin ( ). After his uncle Oleg mentioned in his autobiography that he thinks Aleksandr's last name has helped him in his football career, Tikhonovetsky changed it, taking his wife's last name.

In 2006, he was disqualified for 8 months for testing positive for marijuana.
