From 1991 to 1994, Andriy Klyuyev headed several coal mining-related machine building companies, including "Ukrpidshipnyk" SC which is widely mentioned as his own company.
Klyuyev has been repeatedly accused by journalists of being "a shadowy oligarch" with business links to (former President) Viktor Yanukovych's family, allegedly using his power to secure multi-billion contracts.

Yanukovych election campaign 2010
Klyuyev is described in the press as the Yanukovych’s shadow campaign head in 2010 presidential election, following Borys Kolesnikov as head of the electoral headquarter of the Party of Regions. He got named Deputy Vice Prime Minister only, since more influential competitors insight the Party of Regions managed to occupy the posts of the Head of the Presidential administration and the Prime Minister.

On March 11, 2010 Klyuyev was appointed the First Vice-Prime Minister in the Azarov Government, and after the Yanukovych administrative reform on December 9, 2010 he also has accepted the assignment of the Minister of Economic Development and Trade.
National Security and Defense Council
On February 14, 2012, Klyuyev was appointed Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine. Insiders in the Party of Regions always claimed that his removal from the post of the First Vice Prime Minister, responsible for the European Integration of Ukraine, happened due to the personal conflict with the Head of the Presidential Administration, Sergiy Lyovochkin and was to be seen as a punishment for his influential position within the institutions of the European Union.
