Archbishop Vsevolod (Maidansky) of Scopelos is an auxiliary bishop of the Ecumenical Patriarchate serving in the United States. He is the presiding bishop of the Western Diocese of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the USA.

Vsevolod was consecrated to the episcopacy on September 27, 1987 as primate of the body known as the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of America, which included those parishes of Ukrainian heritage in the United States under the authority of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. In 1997, when the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the USA came under the protection of the Patriarchate as well, the two bodies merged and Bishop Vsevolod moved to Chicago to assume authority of parishes in the western part of the country. On April 14, 2000, the Holy Synod of Constantinople elevated Bishop Vsevolod to the status of an Archbishop.
