Yana Rudkovskaya is a producer and TV presenter who became famous thanks to the victory of her ward Bilan at the Eurovision Song Contest. She created a biography on her own, going from a graduate of a medical school to a successful entrepreneur and a public person.
Childhood and adolescence: the beginning of a biography
Yana was born into a military family in the city of Kostanay (Kazakhstan). His father was a pilot and a flight school teacher, his mother worked as a doctor. Soon after the birth of their daughter, the family moved to Barnaul. It was here that Yana spent her childhood. The parents devoted a lot of time to raising the girl: she read a lot, went in for figure skating, and attended a music school. A variety of hobbies did not interfere with her studies, Yana was an excellent student and graduated from school with a silver medal.
For a long time, the girl could not choose the further path, on the advice of her mother, she entered the medical university. After graduation, Yana received a degree in dermatology and venereology, and then completed an internship in Holland.
The knowledge gained at the university was not wasted. Yana did not plan to work in the hospital, deciding to turn her attention to another area. In 1998, she opened her own beauty salon, quickly transforming the only enterprise into a completely successful network. After 3 years, she was able to buy out the right to represent the prestigious Franck Provost brand in Russia; salons under this brand began to open in other cities.
An interesting and very profitable idea was the development of the network in resort cities: Anapa, Sochi. Adler. Local service was in its infancy, and there were more than enough wealthy clients looking to improve their appearance. Soon Yana became a real monopoly in the field of beauty in the south of Russia. Simultaneously with the network of salons, she developed the clothing direction, opening stylish boutiques.
Rudkovskaya's business empire developed rapidly, and soon the networks were able to exist autonomously, without requiring daily personal attention. Having entrusted the business to the managers, Yana decided to try herself in a new field and became a producer.
The first client was Dima Bilan. With the help of Rudkovskaya, the promising performer was able to win the Eurovision Song Contest, as well as become one of the most popular and well-known pop singers in Russia. The first place at Eurovision glorified not only Bilan, but also Rudkovskaya. In the wake of success, Yana launched the TV show STS Lights a Super Star. Among the producer's successes is working with singers Alexa and Sabrina. Yana herself took part in the filming: she can be seen in Bilan's new clips.
In 2008, Rudkovskaya received several prestigious awards at once. She was named Producer of the Year and the Soundtrack Award. In the personal piggy bank of an ambitious girl and an award from Fashion TV, as well as the unofficial title of "Starlight # 1".
In 2009, Yana published a book with the provocative title "Confessions of a kept woman". Rudkovskaya not only outlined her biography, but also told interesting details about the seamy side of fashion and show business, described the relationship of the artists with each other, touching upon delicate financial issues and contacts with criminal structures.
Rudkovskaya has always enjoyed success with men, but she preferred an official marriage to frivolous intrigues. Yana's first husband was a businessman from Barnaul, Yevgeny Mukhin. The couple moved to Sochi, but soon broke up. The reason for the divorce was the acquaintance with Viktor Baturin: a businessman and brother of Elena Baturina, the wife of the then Moscow mayor.
The fateful meeting took place at a football match in 20011. The relationship began almost immediately, soon Yana and Victor began to live together, and then they registered a marriage. Baturin had a son from a previous wife, whom Yana raised as her own.Later, a joint child, Nikolai, was born.
The couple's relationship was quite prosperous. Baturin helped Yana with the business, it was thanks to his financial infusions that his wife was able to quickly develop a network of beauty salons. However, the relationship gradually began to deteriorate, and in 2008 a scandalous divorce followed. Victor deprived the ex-wife of communication with his sons, about which they wrote a lot in the media, presenting the woman as a victim of a tyrant spouse. However, Baturin himself also came out of the fight with heavy losses: he spent huge amounts of money on lawsuits, and then was imprisoned. In his misadventures, the ex-husband confidently accuses Rudkovskaya.
After the divorce, Yana was not left alone: the next year she married the figure skater Evgeni Plushenko. The producer met him during the preparation of Bilan's performance at Eurovision. After 2 years, a son, Alexander, was born, who received the nickname Gnome Gnomych in the family, Dima Bilan became the baby's godfather. In 2017, Rudkovskaya and Plushenko got married.
After the wedding, Rudkovskaya applied her production experience to her own husband, helping Plushenko's promotion and career growth. Another promising project of Yana is her little son. Sasha is engaged in figure skating, acts as a model and receives quite high fees. Ill-wishers believe that Rudkovskaya deprives the child of childhood and brings him up too harshly, but Yana herself is sure that this is the tactic that will allow her son to succeed in the future and temper his character.
Rudkovskaya devotes a lot of time to her own PR. She runs a popular Instagram channel, posting dozens of carefully edited photos.
