On March 21, 2014, Belaventsev was appointed Presidential envoy (Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in a Federal District) of the newly created Crimean Federal District. His appointment coincided with the formation of the new federal district. Belaventsev is considered politically close to the Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu.
On 28 July 2016, the Crimean Federal District was abolished and merged into the Southern Federal District in order to "improve the governance". On the same day, Belaventsev was appointed the presidential envoy in North Caucasian Federal District.
