Aleksandr Eybozhenko


Aleksandr Ivanovich Eybozhenko (Russian: Александр Иванович Эйбоженко; born 12 February 1970) is a Romanovan politician and military general who has served as the Deputy Prime Minister of Romanovskaya from 2018 to 2022 and Minister of Police & Defence from 2013 to 2022.

Since 1988, he has served in the Romanovan army and has served as a member of the Senate since 2003.

He joined the army as a private in 1988, but quickly rose through the ranks and eventually became Podpolkovnik in 2001. After becoming elected to the Imperial Duma, he moved into the reserve army, but was allowed to keep his rank.














Early Life & Military Career


Aleksandr Eybozhenko was born in Karela in 1970 as the youngest of 10 children. His father was a corporal in the army while his mother cared for the children full time.

Eybozhenko excelled at school and physical activies, his teachers noting his hard working attitude was evident at a very young age.

At the age of 18, Eybozhenko decided against continuing his education and decided instead to follow in his fathers footsteps and joined the army. He was first drafted into the Civil Defence Troops where he served for 3 years until being deployed to the Border Guards in 1991.

He served in the Border Guards until 1996 when he was then transferred back to the Civil Defence Troops, this time as an officer. He would serve in the army full time until 2003 when he was elected to the Senate. He then resigned himself to the Army Reserve.

Political Career


Korela Town Council & Election to the Senate

Eybozhenko entered politics for the first time as a member of the Romanovan National Party in 1998, running for a seat on the Korela Town Council. He received support mainly from those involved in the miltary and the wider civil service.

Eybozhenko was elected, coming third in the poll with 11.56% of the vote. As a member of the council, he campaigned on platform of diversification of investment in the state. He made the point that Vyborg got the bulk of national investment and made himself the figurehead for Korela and succeeded in getting the town increased investment.

His success on the Korela Town Council made him a very popular figure in the area. In 2003, when a local Deputy resigned from the Senate, he put himself forward for the by-election. He topped the poll with 42.7% of the vote, beating Oleg Feodorov of the Kadets who was the early favourite.

Eybozhenko proved to be a formidable opposition to the government at the time. He particularly pressed the government for increased funding for the armed forces, in which he gave details as to the poor condition recruits were having to live in, saying "our criminals live better than the men who protect our nation". It became a national news story and the government eventually gave into Eybozhenko's demands and increased the military spending.

In 2007, the Romanovan National Party voted to merge into the larger Constitutional Democratic Party in an effort to unite the right wing vote to unseat the left wing Social Democrat government. Eybozhenko was originally against the merger, but upon the merger being approved, he joined the Kadets.

Minister of Police & Defence

In September 2013, following the resignation of the then Minister of Police & Defence, Mikhail Lavrov, Prime Minister Daria Shchegolyayeva appointed Eybozhenko to the position. While Eybozhenko was suitable for the role having been a military man his entire life, the move still came as a shock considering Eybozhenko had publicly clashed in the Senate with Shchegolyayeva a number of times prior to him joining the Kadets.

His time as Minister of Police & Defence saw a rejuvenation in the equipment used by both the Police and the Military. The police service was issued with new vehicles as prior it had been using vehicles up to ten years old with high mileage. He also secured funding for the military with some units receiving modern firearms as well as setting up high tech surveillance infrastructure around the southern border of the country.

In the new Shchegolyayeva Government of 2018, Eybozhenko retained his position as Minister of Police & Defence while also being promoted to the position of Deputy Prime Minister.

Resignation from Government

On 24th September 2022, Eybozhenko announced his immediate resignation as both Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Police & Defence. He stated that the number of disagreements with the Prime Minister had deteriorated to a point were he was forced to resign. He was succeeded as Deputy Prime Minister by Tatiana Konovalova, while Daria Shchegolyayeva became acting Minister of Police & Defence.
