    Elena Drapeko : biography

    A wide range of domestic viewers Elena G. Drapeko is known not only as an active politician and Deputy of the State Duma. First of all, love him as a wonderful actress, who became famous for the role in the military drama «the dawns here are quiet».

    Elena Drapeko was born in Western Kazakhstan. Her early childhood years were spent in the city of Uralsk. There once moved the ancestors of Elena Grigorievna by her father. They were Ukrainians, natives of the province of Chernigov. Ancestors on my mother’s side belonged to the conservatives and moved to the Urals in the time of Peter.

    Family of Elena Drapeko several times moved. When my daughter was a few years old, they moved to Ufa. Then in Pavlovsk. School of the future actress graduated in Leningrad region, in the town of Pushkin. In her family the parents were not associated with the world of theatre or cinema. Military father taught political economy at the universities, my mother worked as a history teacher.

    However, the daughter chose the cinema. It was surprising, but not the resistance of the parents who used to respect the opinion of the daughter. Elena Drapeko has easily entered the Leningrad Institute of culture, from which he graduated in 1968 and received the diploma of the Director. But the resulting knowledge Drapeko was not enough, and she continued to study at the Institute of theatre, music and cinematography. Graduated in 1972 and immediately received an invitation to a film Studio «Lenfilm».


    A cinematic biography of Elena Drapeko began when she was a student in my last year of high school theater. She entrusted one of the main roles in the cult war movie «the dawns here are quiet». Drama Stanislav Rostotsky got an incredible success with audiences and critics. The film looked millions of Soviet viewers. The role of Lisa Brichkina brought Elena Drapeko great fame and recognition.

    In subsequent years, Elena Drapeko was filmed regularly. Year came out 3-4 movies in which she participated. Young actress appeared in the films «Tagged atom», «Circle», «Eternal call», «the guy», «Old friends». But all these roles were small or sporadic.

    The main role went to Elena Drapeko in 1976. She played Olga Muromtsev in the film «the fatherless». This is a melodrama, filmed by Vladimir Shamshura on the story by A. P. Chekhov.

    The most striking projects, favorite viewers of the Soviet Union in the 1980s, was the painting «the Wormwood — a grass bitter» and «Lonely provided hostel». In the last romance, which was released in 1983, Elena Grigorievna got the role of Nina, whose uneasy relationship with the hero Frunzik Mkrtchyan worked Vera Golubeva, played by Natalia Gundareva.

    Perhaps this was the last starring role in a cinematic biography of Elena Drapeko. In the 1990s, which proved to be a difficult period for the country and cinema, the actress starred little. During this period she became interested in politics and began to make a career in it.

    From movies of the last decade where there was Elena Drapeko, as the most striking may be noted crime series «Gangster Petersburg», where the actress played attorney Mary S. Plotkin, romance «Sonka — the gold Handle» and «Women’s day».


    A keen sense of justice and desire to help people has always been the main character of Elena Drapeko. In «dashing 90-x» the need for protection arose among many. And Elena G. went to help people. First, as a public figure, then as a professional politician.

    In 1992 Drapeko was elected Chairman of the Committee on culture and tourism of the mayoralty of St.-Petersburg. A year later was appointed to the position of Vice-President of the Russian Guild of cinema actors. A year later, in 1994, she graduated already Professor of the humanitarian University of trade unions of the city on the Neva. She successfully defended her candidate degree in sociological Sciences.

    In 1996 Elena Drapeko becomes a member of the Presidium of the public movement «people’s Patriotic Union of Russia», and after 3 years was elected Deputy of the State Duma of the 3rd convocation from the Communist party.

    In 2007, Elena G. again became the Deputy of the state Duma of the 5th convocation and head of the party «Fair Russia: Motherland / Pensioners / Life». However, she is the only member who has no housing in Moscow. Together with the minor daughter Nastya Elena G. long lived in the hotel.

    Now the politician is a member of the permanent Commission inter-parliamentary Assembly of States on culture, information, tourism and sport and the International Slavic Academy of Sciences.

    Personal life

    About my personal life Elena Drapeko speaks very sparingly. Not proper to her, the Deputy of the state Duma, to share details that concern only her and the loved ones.

    From different sources we know that in the life of Elena Grigorievna has had three marriages. The first happened very early, when she was a student. The politician does not like to think about it, considering this sudden Union of a youthful mistake.

    The second time Drapeko married colleague Oleg Belov. She claims it was a marriage of great and sincere love. He has a daughter Nastya. She was born when she was 35 years old. The joint life of the couple lasted 13 years, but in the end, fell apart. Elena Drapeko began a successful political career. According to her, the man to the success of his wife jealously treated. They broke up.

    The name of the third wife Elena Grigorievna calls. Says he «was a professional chief» with all the trappings of power. And all would be wonderful if Drapeko has completely abandoned his political ambitions and become a simple housewife, homemaker, patiently waiting for a tired husband, the head of the work. But Elena Grigorievna is not satisfied. So broke his third Union.

    Personal life of Elena Drapeko now – for seven locks. One day she let slip that she has a beloved man, with whom she is calm, cozy and warm.
