Abstract in different language: he aim of the work is the analysis of the professional activity of Apollon Konstantinovich Krivoshein as the Railway Minister of the Russian Empire. The mentioned qualities, which were acquired and developed by A. K. Krivoshein during his career progress towards the post of Minister, allowed him to do many things on the position of Minister. Among his main initiatives and achievements, the following should be noted: beginning and a successful development of an extremely complex construction of the Great Siberian Railway; development of infrastructure of the Institute of Railway Engineers; opening of two railway technical colleges – in Yekaterinoslav and Krasnoyarsk. The career advance of A. K. Krivoshein’s was promoted not only by his personal abilities but also by the family ties and intrigues at the court of Emperor Alexander III. And conversely, during the reign of Nicholas II, A. K. Krivoshein had already become a hostage of circumstances and court intrigues that caused his resignation.
