Dmitry Kozak: biography, family, parents, education
Dmitry Nikolaevich was born on November 7, 1958 in a family of ordinary rural workers. Childhood and youth passed in Ukraine - in the village of Bandurovo, Kirovograd region. The native village can hardly be called a cultural and developed regional center - dilapidated houses, problems with energy supply and crowded buses to Kiev did not portend a successful political career. Father - Nikolai, was on the board of the local collective farm, and also headed the revision committee. There is no information available about the mother. Dmitry has a younger brother, Vasily.
The head of the family raised his children in severity and demanded diligence in everything. The father's approach affected the successes of the eldest son, making him thoughtful, responsible and disciplined. The young man studied "perfectly" at school. While peers had fun, sat over books, showed great interest in the exact and technical sciences: mathematics, chemistry, physics. Subsequently, this determined admission to a higher educational institution. One of the school teachers advised me to enter the technical faculty of some good Ukrainian university.
The teacher’s advice was perceived as an instruction for action, and after school Dmitry tried to enter the Vinnitsa Polytechnic Institute. However, the first attempt to become a student at a prestigious university failed, and the future politician went to the army.
The service in the armed forces is interesting because Kozak did not get into the battalion or tank troops, but into the elite units of the GRU special forces of the General Staff of the USSR. He was in the army from 1976 to 1978.
After completing military service, I managed to enter the Faculty of Engineering at the Vinnitsa Polytechnic. But the realization came that technical sciences, although they like them, are not a vocation. Therefore, it was decided to move from the Ukrainian SSR to St. Petersburg, and change the VPI to the law faculty of Leningrad State University. It is noteworthy, but the parents did not know about a sharp change in priorities in the education of their son. Everything became clear after a student card of a new educational institution was received. In 1985, Leningrad State University was graduated with honors.
Students are remarkable from the perspective of a fateful acquaintance with future Russian leaders. The current president, Vladimir Putin, and the prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, studied at the same faculty as Kozak.
The rise of the political career of "ex-engineer"
At the age of 27, after receiving education at Leningrad State University, he received the post of prosecutor in Leningrad, where he worked for about four years (from 1985 to 1989). However, the public service did not work out. According to media reports, nepotism reigned in the prosecutor's office of the 80s, which contradicted the principles of a young lawyer. The prosecutor constantly came into conflict with his leadership, which prevented career advancement. A personal conflict with the authorities forced him to leave the civil law enforcement service. In 1989, the official got a job as a lawyer at Monolit-Kirovstroy.
The nineties can be considered fateful in the life of the Deputy Prime Minister, as there have been several events that will subsequently affect career and family. In the period from 1990 to 1991, the politician worked in the Leningrad City Executive Committee - first as the head of the legal department, and then as the head of the legal department of the City Council. At the same time, Dmitry Nikolayevich creates his own law firm Neva YUST. In 1993 he became a co-founder of the legal company "Convent".
Political career began in 1994, when the official decided to run for deputies of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg. However, the elections were declared invalid, but this did not prevent the future deputy prime minister from getting into power, and from September to January of 94, he served as chairman of the committee of the City Hall of the Northern capital under the chairmanship of Anatoly Sobchak. Dmitry Nikolayevich is considered the author of the city Charter.
In 1996, mayoral elections were held in St. Petersburg, in which Sobchak lost to Vladimir Yakovlev. As a result, the entire “Sobchak team”, which included German Gref, Vladimir Putin, Viktor Ivanov, Dmitry Medvedev, Alexei Kudrin and others, moved to Moscow. However, Kozak temporarily abandoned the capital and remained the chairman of the legal committee, and two years later he became vice-governor of St. Petersburg. He did not work long in his new position, disagreements with the leadership, in particular with the head of the Northern capital Yakovlev, again prevented career growth.
After leaving the city hall, he returned to his Neva-Yust firm, and until May 1999, he was a member of the Board of Directors of the Banking House of St. Petersburg.
In May 1999, he was again asked to return to public service and made an offer that was difficult to refuse - the post of deputy head of the legal affairs department in the Presidential Administration of Russia. After the career of Vladimir Putin went uphill, the head of the government apparatus. In the winter of 1999-2000, he oversaw the development of a strategic development project for Russia until 2010.
In the period from 2000 to 2008, Kozak held major government posts:
- Since June 4, 2000, he served as deputy head of the presidential administration. He was a member of the Presidential Council on Improving Justice and was involved in the reform of the judicial system, local self-government and housing and public utilities,
- In October 2003 he became the first deputy chief of the presidential administration. In the same year, he joined the Board of Directors of RAO Russian Railways,
- On March 9, 2004 he headed the Apparatus of the Government of the Russian Federation and became Minister,
- From September 13, 2004 to September 24, 2007 he was the plenipotentiary of the president in the Southern Federal District and headed the "Special Federal Commission for the North Caucasus." The appointment was facilitated by the attack with the school in Beslan,
- In the fall of 2007, he was appointed Minister of Regional Development. It was entrusted with the supervision of the construction of Olympic facilities and the development of the city of Sochi. Since May 2008 - Minister of Regional Development, chaired by Putin,
- From 2008 to the present, he has been the Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation,
Dmitry Kozak post for today
After the May inauguration of Vladimir Putin (more about the eventin the exclusive material of the online information publication PolitPazl)The Deputy Prime Minister retained his position, but his credentials changed. Instead of overseeing the development of the peninsula, Crimea began to deal with energy and industry.
At the moment, Medvedev’s deputy is solving difficulties with excise taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel, is working on gas transportation tariffs, and is also dealing with the problem of processing aluminum.
According to available information, after numerous meetings, Kozak voiced the theses regarding the situation with fuel, the price of which in the country began to rise sharply in the early summer of 2018. Gasoline excise taxes were reduced to 3,000 rubles per ton, and diesel excise taxes by 2,000 rubles. According to the official, these measures are situational - they will reduce the price at gas stations, but not by much. In the future, more radical measures will be needed - it will be necessary to make gas excises of 5,000 rubles less. The measures taken were a reaction to rising prices in the world, raising taxes, as well as unplanned repairs of refineries by manufacturers. The government’s decision on fuel stabilized the situation on the energy market and prevented prices from creeping up high.
Kozak did not accept the initiative for the collection of bicycles and bicycles. In his opinion, the idea is crude and needs to be improved. The bill itself on the introduction of fees arose against the backdrop of US sanctions against RusAl, as well as due to the introduction of increased duties on aluminum and steel from Washington, which led to a drop in sales. To spur demand for aluminum products, an idea was introduced with the introduction of a recycling fee. RusAl, in turn, again raised the issue of purchasing aluminum to form a reserve. Several years ago, the company's management already proposed this in the event of an unfavorable situation in the metal markets.
Deputy Medvedev seriously took up the solution to the problems of domestic refineries, which are constantly given cash subsidies from the state budget. The problem is significant - in 2017, Russia allocated 1 trillion rubles. To remedy the situation, Kozak announced the development of an initiative on the obligations of oil producers to send 17.5% of annual production to Russian oil refineries.
Milestones in the career of Dmitry Kozak
“The Vice Prime Minister is a true advocate of legal standards and the rule of law.” It can be seen that the service in the prosecutor’s office was not in vain, and the post of prosecutor in Leningrad was in the spirit of the politician. During his career, Kozak has not missed a lot of legal acts, federal programs and legislative initiatives, sending raw documents for revision. Passing tight control of an official is a serious challenge. At one time, even a statement appeared reflecting all the difficulties of passing control - "Kozak sieve".
- The post of the representative of the president in the Southern Federal District and the head of the special commission for resolving problems in the North Caucasus, especially in the context of the terrorist attack in Beslan, were considered "firing squad". Opponents rubbed their hands and waited for him to fail. However, for three years at the indicated positions, the official solved the problems of the warring clans, reduced the level of corruption, developed a plan to eliminate the consequences of the Ossetian-Ingush conflict, quenched the pockets of tension in the district, unblocked federal highways and reassured the “Mother of Beslan”. As a result, the leaders of the southern regions praised the results of his activities highly.Kozak himself did not flatter himself and said that he was simply doing everything possible.
- Developed a Memorandum on the unification of Moldova and Transnistria.
- He sold a reform unpopular in the judiciary, according to which the judges lost their lifelong status, received immunity restrictions. The reform also allowed the withdrawal of the IC from the Ministry of Internal Affairs with the transfer of part of the jurisdiction.
The childhood and youth of Dmitry Kozak
Today, the village of Bandurovo, Kirovograd Region, is a small settlement where life, if it has not stopped, flows slowly, in its usual way. Old dilapidated houses, constant interruptions in electricity and 6 hours on a crowded bus to the Ukrainian capital - the present bleak picture is the present Bandurovo. However, it was here that the childhood of the future Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation passed.
According to a family legend, Dmitry Nikolaevich was destined to achieve great career success. Whether the prophecy was the reason, or is it all about the severity of the character of Mykola Kozak, but he was especially strict towards his eldest son. All help with the housework lay on Mitya’s shoulders, but it was unusual for the boy to complain.
At school, Dmitry studied for one five and received an excellent certificate for the 8th grade, but in 10th grade obstinacy played against him and cost Kozak a medal. Great expectations - great responsibility. And understanding all the responsibility assigned to him, at the age of 17, Dmitry Kozak left his native Bandurovo without any help.
Teacher Dmitry recommended a capable student to enter the Vinnitsa Polytechnic University, because he always had a penchant for exact sciences, however, after studying there for a short time, Kozak decided to radically change his life and went to conquer other heights - the law faculty of Leningrad State University. This adventure remained a secret for relatives and friends of the young man until he received a student ID and became a full-fledged student.
