Adlan Khasanov (May 25, 1970 – May 9, 2004) was a Chechen, Russian journalist and photographer, killed in action in Grozny.

Khasanov studied journalism at the Chechen State University, and later worked in newspapers as a reporter and photographer. He also worked for Reuters and Radio Liberty.

He was killed during a 9 May Victory Day parade at the "Dynamo" stadium in Grozny, in a bomb blast carried out by Chechen separatists in an attempt to eliminate Kremlin-backed Chechen President Akhmad Kadyrov. The stadium had undergone remodeling and reconstruction, and, according to reports, a bomb placed inside a concrete part of the structure escaped security detection sweeps.
