Pretych (10 th c.) – Siversk Voivode of the Grand Prince Sviatoslav Ihorovych of Kyiv.

In the spring of 969, when the Pechenegs besieged Kyiv, Siversk Voivode Pretych well organized the defence of the city. As Sviatoslav with a large part of his army waged a campaign at that time, Pretych with a small detachment managed to save Kyiv from plundering by the nomads using clever diplomatic and military steps.
