In 2003, Yana expanded her business through a network of clothing stores from leading world brands and again did not fail – Rudkovskaya became one of the richest and most influential businesswomen in southern Russia. Her husband, millionaire Viktor Baturin, gave her great help in organizing a business then, but one must also pay tribute to the innate business acumen of Yana herself.

In 2005, Rudkovskaya changed her field of activity somewhat and went into show business. After the death of Yuri Aizenshpis, a close friend of Yana, she “inherited” the young and promising singer Dima Bilan, whom Rudkovskaya undertook to produce. In three years, she made him the most popular artist on the Russian stage, and Bilan’s victory at Eurovision in 2008 brought the singer to a new level of success.

Shortly after Eurovision, Yana got a new ward, her future husband Evgeni Plushenko. Rudkovskaya, with her characteristic zeal, began to patronize her husband, whose sports career was coming to an end. Numerous injuries no longer allowed the 2006 Olympic champion to demonstrate all his abilities, but Yana insisted that he still take part in the Sochi Olympics in 2014.

But Zhenya could not stand the crazy loads and withdrew from the performances in the individual tournament. A huge scandal erupted, promising the athlete a loss of reputation and complete oblivion. And only thanks to the intervention of Rudkovskaya, Evgeny did not turn out to be an outcast and remained afloat. Together with her husband, the enterprising Yana organized the Nutcracker ice show, picking up the idea of the Snow Queen by Ilya Averbukh, and staged a grand PR campaign in support of Plushenko.
