Rabbi Yoel Shurin – the Poltava Illui – was a talmid of the Netziv and the Rosh Yeshiva of yeshivas Ohr Torah.

I found this article about the Poltaver Illui in the Yiddishe Licht.

And here in the publication Beis Yaakov.

Also, a קשה he asked in בבא קמא is brought in אבן האזל.

Some historical documentation here, here and here.

I have previously posted about him here.
