Dmitri Olegovich Bulykin (Russian: Дмитрий Олегович Булыкин; born 20 November 1979) is a retired Russian footballer. Between 2003 and 2005, he played regularly for the Russian national team.
Bulykin began his football career with Lokomotiv Moscow in 1997. He stayed with Lokomotiv for three years scoring 28 goals in 94 appearances and attracted quite a bit of attention. In Lokomotiv Moscow Bulykin won Silver medals (1999, 2000), Bronze (1997) and two times Russian Cup (1997, 2000).
In 2001, Bulykin signed with Dynamo Moscow and quickly established himself as the first team player for the next three seasons. He scored a total of 29 goals in 90 appearances for the club. In 2003 was invited to the Russian national team.
With improving performances for both club and country, Bulykin, who had never hidden his desire to move to a foreign club, was expected to move abroad. In January 2004 he spent two weeks on trial with Everton, but he did not have enough caps for a work permit. In 2005, hoping move to England, Bulykin went on trials in Portsmouth but that transfer did not happen. As a result, Bulykin remained with Dynamo, and was quickly relegated to play in the second team, and eventually excluded from training process altogether. While almost breaking his relationship with Dynamo, he re-signed for the 2006 season, after the former Russia manager Yuri Syomin was appointed as the club's manager. On 31 March, when Bulykin was ready to come as a substitute against Saturn, Syomin shouted at him, "Take off the mittens!", a moment that was televised live. Syomin later said that he considers wearing gloves when the weather is relatively mild to be a sign of unwillingness to work hard, while Bulykin himself took Syomin's shout as an emboldening, albeit a bit over the top one. Syomin was sacked mid season and under the next manager, Andrei Kobelev, Bulykin was placed on the transfer list, where he spent the end of 2006. Trying to resolve Bulykin's deadlock with Dynamo, its general manager, Dmitri Ivanov, stated that the club would release Bulykin with no transfer cost, should there be any interest from anyone.
