At the same time, the Kremlin authorities, in the person of the president, did not appoint a successor to lead the Krasnodar Krai from the Varangians, stopping their choice on the man who was Tkachev's closest aide. And despite the fact that the new head of the Kuban, Veniamin Kondratiev, for almost twenty years, he held the post of vice-president in the team of Alexander Nikolayevich, an ordinary Krasnodar can hardly know the details of his career growth. Yes, and information about the biography of this regional policy is not so much. He himself tried not to show his ambitions in public, preferring to calmly do the work that was assigned to him. Nevertheless, the question of how Veniamin Kondratiev could achieve great heights on the political Olympus of the Kuban will be of interest to many. Let's consider it in more detail.

Childhood and youth

Already after the second year of the law faculty, a young man finds a job in the company because he wanted to have financial independence from his parents. At first he worked in commercial structures. The young man succeeded both in philological and legal disciplines, and employers were happy with him, as he coped well with his duties. Naturally, the prospects for career growth in the young man were the most rosy.

Soon, Veniamin Kondratiev was already solving the dilemma of where to go to work. Before him there was a choice: to become an investigator of the regional prosecutor's office or to deal with legal issues in the apparatus of the Kuban government. The young man chose the second option, which promised to everything else his own living space.

Career manager

In 1994, Veniamin Kondratiev, whose biography is not well known to everyone, was enlisted in the staff of the regional department of the regional administration, and after a while moved to the legal department of the Kuban administration.

At the beginning of the zero Veniamin Ivanovich sat in the chair of the assistant to the head of the apparatus, becoming the head of the legal department of the Krasnodar administration.

In the summer of 2003, Kondratieff was appointed as assistant to the head of the Kuban administration, instructing him to supervise questions of property, land relations, as well as aspects of their legal regulation.

Graduated from KubSU for several years accumulated experience, working in the system of public administration.

Companion Tkachev

In the period from 2007 to 2014 Veniamin Ivanovich works as an assistant to the governor of Kuban, supervising issues of property relations in the regional department.

Political scientists note that at this post Kondratiev supports any initiatives of his boss, who gave him high confidence. The entire career of the then vice-governor was focused on implementing all the tasks set by Alexander Tkachev. At the same time, there was not even a hint of running a backstage game of its own. At the same time, as part of the gubernatorial assistants, Veniamin Ivanovich kept aloof, not participating in any collusion and intrigue. He tried not to judge the work of his colleagues.

Experts also note that the future receiver Tkachev was closest to the political establishment of the capital, because he was in charge of property affairs in the resort region.

A new turn in the career

In the summer of 2014, Kondratyev Veniamin Ivanovich enlisted in the staff of the Main Administration of the Federal Property of Russia of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation and after a short time at the helm of this structure. But it was not all milestones of career take-off.

In the spring of 2015, a philologist and a lawyer in one person receives the post of assistant manager of affairs of the President of the Russian Federation. And after a week and a half Kondratiev Veniamin Ivanovich was appointed acting head of the Krasnodar region.

At the post and. about.

Having received a responsible post, the first thing he did was staff rotation. Several vice-governors wrote statements about leaving. This measure Veniamin Kondratiev explained simply: he is not satisfied with the work of his colleagues. From the "old guard" of Alexander Tkachev there were only the vice-mayor of Krasnodar Natalia Makhanko and the mayor of the Hot Key Nikolay Shvartsman. The rest he offered to work in the apparatus of the regional administration.

Rating of confidence in and. about. The head of the region rose significantly after Veniamin Ivanovich reacted in a harsh manner to the unsatisfactory work of the Sochi police. He brought order in matters of land relations in the region, eradicating such problems as unauthorized seizure of territories and illegally erected buildings. In addition, he adjusted the work of the gambling business.

Victory in elections

In autumn 2015 it became known that Veniamin Ivanovich, having secured 84% of the votes, would become the governor of the Krasnodar Territory.

His work at the post of the acting majority of Kuban residents was recognized effective.

Scandals and criticism of the new governor

The issues of land relations, which are part of the sphere of contradictions between the regional and municipal authorities, also affected the person of the new head of the Kuban.

Back in 2012, he allegedly signed on a document that legitimized the transfer of a land plot in Gelendzhik to Patriarch Kirill. The subordinates of Kondratieff were prosecuted, and he himself became a witness in the case. After the judge read out the verdict, Veniamin Ivanovich went to the capital: he needed to prepare for promotion, initiated by the Russian president. Representatives of the opposition believe that by doing so, he secured himself from the pressure of law enforcement agencies, which after the Olympics launched an active activity to investigate the above case.

After the leadership of the Krasnodar Territory Kondratiev Veniamin, the rating of confidence in him from the citizens somewhat shaken. The whole point is that the workers of the machine-tool plant named after. Gray (Krasnodar), which was declared bankrupt, complained: the authorities do not react to the non-payment of wages to them.

Also, officials ignored their rally, held in the middle of autumn 2015. Shortly before the protest action, the new governor of the Krasnodar Territory Veniamin Kondratiev wrote on his page in the social network that the debts would be repaid, but in practice the problem remained unresolved.

Another blow to the authority of the new head of the Kuban was recorded in November 2015: Sochi residents accused the authorities of inaction and ignoring the consequences of the flood, which occurred in the summer of the same year in the capital of the Olympic Games. Residents complained that commercial construction in the city and unequipped storm water continue to increase the damage from natural disasters. New objects have violated the system of natural and man-made drains, and instead of rivers and sea water spreads through the city streets. In the opinion of Sochi residents, the government closes all eyes to all this, despite the fact that there is a reception of Veniamin Kondratyev (tel .: 8 (861) 268-60-44), which should react to such cases.

Another surge of discontent with the regional authorities occurred at the beginning of this year. This time the victims were Krasnodar pensioners, who went to the rally with a demand to return benefits in public transport. A similar action was organized by elderly people in Sochi, but their protest action was illegal, and they were summoned to the precinct, who had a talk with them. Anyway, but people were outraged by the fact that the authorities did not react to their requests and demands in any way.

A family

As for the personal life of the new governor of the Krasnodar Territory, it is hidden from the public behind seven seals. In particular, you will not find information about what Veniamin Kondratyev's wife does and how, for example, she met the future head of the Kuban. It is known that the official himself, while in the post of vice-governor, in 2014 earned a little more than 4.7 million rubles, and his wife a year earlier indicated income of 73 thousand rubles.

Veniamin Ivanovich has two children. He owns an apartment of 120 "squares" and cars VAZ-2107 and UAZ-3159. That's so modest by today's gubernatorial standards is the family of Veniamin Kondratiev.

An official is always available for communication. He has accounts in social networks, which regularly monitors his press center for new applications from citizens. Therefore, there is another way to ask the head of the Krasnodar region.


Anyway, but from Veniamin Kondratieff waiting for change, and cardinal. First of all, reforms in the law enforcement system, audit in the judiciary community are needed, the opposition between farmers and large farms over land is progressing, and these problems seriously hamper the development of the region. Also, residents are outraged by the state of affairs in the auto insurance system and the inability to obtain the coveted MTPL policy. And this is not a complete list of vital issues for citizens. Can the Governor Veniamin Kondratiev move everything from a dead center? Time will tell.
