from Perm Higher Command Engineering School and a few years later from
the General Staff Military Academy. From 1991 he was first deputy chief
oforate for Work With Personnel of the Federal Government Communications
and Information Agency under the Russian Federation president. He joined
the border guards in 1992 as deputy commander of the Border Troops and
in 1995 became deputy director of the Federal Border Service. In this post
he was responsible for troop training, educational work, and departmental
educational establishments. He was known among his subordinates as a cultured
person, "without harmful habits," and, unlike General Nikolayev, his predecessor,
not prey to political ambition” (Russkiy Telegraf in Russian 15 Sep 98
p 2). “Like Yeltsin, Bordyuzha is a big tennis fan but prefers
the ordinary man's volleyball to the tennis court of the elite. He is no
bright star, no individualist, but rather a team man. When he was deputy
to Andrey Nikolayev at the Federal Border Guard Service, he was in charge
of border higher educational institutions, sports, and artistic activities.
Other deputies had much more important patches. However, when he left his
job it was Bordyuzha whom Nikolayev recommended to the President as his
successor as director of the Federal Border Guard Service. Bordyuzha was
the most reliable and staunch member of the top ranks of the service.”

“One of the key figures in Kokoshin's entourage .... For four years
he was chief of staff of the North Caucasus Military District -- that is,
first deputy to Anatoliy Kvashnin, the present chief of the General Staff.
Potapov hoped that when he left for Moscow, Kvashnin would recommend him
for the commander's position. But Kvashnin thought Potapov was too
soft; he liked to call him an "esthete" and preferred another person.
He recommended Potapov for the GVI, where he was received with open arms:
After all, the Kokoshinites were getting a combat general who knows the
troops well (before the North Caucasus Military District, Potapov was commander
of an army in Ussuriysk) and has extensive connections at the General Staff.
Moreover, Potapov's appearance corresponds very well to the norms of the
Kokoshin team: He was happy to exchange his military uniform for
a suit and was even dubbed "dandy" for his dress style.” (Kommersant-Vlast
