In all the photos of Boris Yeltsin during the August 1991 coup, a bald, stocky man is standing next to the first president of Russia on a tank. This is Alexander Vasilyevich Korzhakov, who guarded the first persons of the state for almost 3 decades. In the pictures, behind Alexander Suvorov's full namesake is Viktor Zolotov, now the head of the Russian National Guard. Korzhakov reveals the secrets of the biographies of Russian leaders in books that are popular with readers.



Childhood and youth

The future security guard was born on January 31, 1950 in Moscow in the family of Vasily Kapitonovich, a worker at the Trekhgornaya manufactory. Alexander Vasilyevich has a brother.

After leaving school, the graduate worked as a mechanic at an electromechanical plant and at the same time studied at the correspondence department of MPEI. At the turn of the 60s and 70s of the XX century, a sporty and disciplined Muscovite did military service in the Kremlin regiment.



Personal life

In his youth, Korzhakov married Irina, the same age. The first wife gave Alexander two daughters - Galina and Natalia. In 2013, a man said that he had 7 grandchildren, including both the children of daughters and the blood grandchildren of his second wife, Elena.

In the summer of 2009, a tragedy struck in the personal life of the youngest daughter of Alexander Vasilyevich. Natalia's husband, senior lieutenant of the Federal Drug Control Service Konstantin Khrustalev, and his colleague, FSKN lieutenant Pavel Mazan, were found dead. The cause of death of the young officers, according to the histological examination, was methadone poisoning.

Alexander Vasilievich is a big dog lover. Over the years, shepherd dogs and dachshunds, Labradors and mestizo Labradors lived with Yeltsin's guard.




From 1970 to 1989, Korzhakov worked in the 9th department of the KGB, having managed to join the CPSU during this time, serve 2 years in Afghanistan and graduate from a law institute. The man was present during the agony of Yuri Andropov, which lasted 2 weeks.

Defending the top officials of the state, Korzhakov learned to stand on his feet for hours, not eat for days and not go to the toilet all day. Now it affects the health of the guard.

Since 1985, Alexander Vasilyevich served as Boris Yeltsin's bodyguard. The specialist continued to perform the functions of Yeltsin's security even when the politician fell into disgrace in 1987. Formally, in 1987-1989, the man worked as a security guard in commercial structures.

After Yeltsin was elected president of Russia, Korzhakov became the head of the Security Service of Boris Nikolaevich, the creator of the FSO. Alexander personally arrested the leaders of the anti-Yeltsin rebellion in the fall of 1993. According to the specialist, which he either repeats or refutes, during the hours of Boris Nikolayevich's inability to fulfill the duties of the head of state, the security guard practically led Russia.

Alexander Vasilyevich fell out of favor after the scandal with the "copier box". The man ordered the arrest of Arkady Yevstafiev and Sergei Lisovsky, who, like him, were part of the Yeltsin campaign headquarters. They took out cash from the building of the Russian government in the amount of $ 538 thousand. The president's daughter, Anatoly Chubais and Alfred Kokh, stood up for the politicians, and Korzhakov was forced to write a letter of resignation.

In 1997 he became a member of the State Duma of Russia and made his debut as a writer. In the first book, "Boris Yeltsin: From Dawn to Dusk," Alexander Vasilyevich disclosed compromising evidence about the circle of the 1st President of Russia, but spoke relatively softly about politics. Korzhakov's assessments of Boris Nikolaevich became more negative in the continuation of his memoirs.

In 2007, the former ruler's bodyguard did not attend Yeltsin's funeral and told the reasons for the failure to appear to the Ukrainian journalist Dmitry Gordon. In 2011, the man completed his deputy activities.



Alexander Korzhakov now

In 2017, Alexander Vasilyevich again gave an interview to Dmitry Gordon. A three-hour conversation in 2007 aired as part of the program "Visiting Dmitry Gordon", although in fact the film crew was staying at Korzhakov's 3-storey country house, built near the village of Molokovo, his mother's small homeland.

Ten years later, the journalist talked to the former Yeltsin security guard using video link. In an interview in 2017, the man denied the words of Leonid Kravchuk that the Belovezhskaya agreements on the collapse of the Soviet Union were signed without alcoholic libations. He said that he was grateful to Mikhail Gorbachev for the glasnost and advertised his book “Demons 2.0. And the kings are not real! " The author of the memoirs also hinted that Patriarch Kirill was recruited by the KGB in his youth.

Presenting the book in Tula in June 2017, Alexander Vasilyevich said that he did not credit Vladimir Putin with the transfer of Crimea to Russian jurisdiction.

In September 2018, Alexander Vasilyevich answered the questions of the editor-in-chief of the online edition "Gordon" Alesya Batsman about Anatoly Sobchak and Viktor Zolotov. In particular, Korzhakov accused the daughter and wife of the former mayor of St. Petersburg of bringing the man to a heart attack. Alexander Vasilyevich spoke of two Russian politicians as competent and decent people - Sergei Shoigu and Sergei Lavrov. The former eminent bodyguard estimated the personal fortune of Putin at $ 200 billion.


At the end of 2018, Alexander Vasilyevich accused Roman Abramovich of embezzling $ 13 billion from the budget of the Russian Federation. In a petition sent to a London court and considering Boris Berezovsky's claim against Abramovich, the specialist asked to return the stolen money to Russia.

In 2020, the writer delighted fans of his work with a new book "Kremlin Tales". This time, the memoirs of the former head of the Security Service are presented in Aesopian language. With the release of tales, Korzhakov denied rumors of his stroke and death. However, Alexander Vasilyevich cannot boast of good health now - after knee surgery in 2007, the former security guard is not always able to get up from the chair.




1997 - "Boris Yeltsin: from dawn to dusk" 2004 - "Boris Yeltsin: from dawn to dusk. Afterword "2012 -" The inner circle of "Tsar Boris" 2017 - "Demons 2.0. And the kings are not real! " 2020 - "Kremlin Tales"
