Sektor Gaza (Russian: Сектор Газа, translated Gaza Strip or "Gas Sector") was a Russian punk rock band formed on 5 December 1987 in the city of Voronezh, Russia. Despite only semi-officially existing (due to obscene lyrics), the group remains popular in Russia today. The group name was taken from an eponymous industrial district of Voronezh (itself named for high levels of environmental contamination). Their music style could be defined as Russian punk, integrated with elements of different musical genres such as rock, rap, and Russian folk.

A punk-opera named "Kaschey-the-immortal" was released in 1994. It is a punk version of a famous Russian fairy tale with the name of the evil protagonist taken as its title. In this album Yuri has borrowed musical themes from a number popular groups such as AC/DC, Queen, Ace of Base, Nirvana, infusing them with his own lyrics. The album ranked in the top 10, and journalists called "SG" "a young promising group from the back of beyond".

The group released four videoclips: "Kolkhoz punk", "Lyric", "The fog" and "It's time to return home". Together with DJ Mole Yuri arranged some "SG" remixes in techno. "SG" uses curse words in their songs, but this was rarely seen in any of their concert performances. Klinskikh was quoted as stating, "I am using four letter words not for the sake of it...our songs are for those who can understand us. If you're stupid, you remain the same after the concert".

In November 1998 "SG" toured Russia.

A new album, "Hellraiser," was released in October 2000. Klinskikh's health was declining due to liver disease. On 4 July 2000, Yuri "Hoy" Klinskih complained of strong pains in his stomach and the left side of his chest. He chose not to cancel a meeting later that day to film a music video for the song "Noch Straha". He suffered heart failure shortly thereafter. Klinskikh died in Voronezh (Russia)at the age of 35. He is buried in the Levoberezhniy Cemetery.
