The paper is devoted to the study of the establishment of the Effective Political Machines and the conditions for their development in the regional context of the Russian Federation. At the regional level patron-client relations are built between the governor's corps and local brokers, represented by business circles, administrative officials and public leaders, and affecting the formation of the Political Machine. These networks depend on economic well-being of citizens, agrarian activities, level of urbanization, and ethnic diversity of regions being reinforced by an administrative resource. Based on the comparison of the two regional Political Machines in Russia, namely, Krasnoyarskyi krai and Primorskyi krai, different regional features were identified in the cooperation between local political elites and the national political party "United Russia" that took place to mobilize the population during the elections to the State Duma in 2016.
