Anna (bright Ukrainian person with Russian roots; her parents came to Ukraine from Siberian town Omsk) was born on December 16, 1982 in Kiev.
From the very early childhood, Anna was engaged in music and dances. When she was 6, she became the member of the Ukrainian folklore ensemble Svitanok. She graduated from school with a golden medal; she also graduated musical school as a brilliant student.
During her studies at university, Anna was working as a model, as a presenter in the club and then she was suggested to become a presenter of the program O-TV Models on O-TV musical channel.

Anna left her TV-show host career and joined VIAGRA (extremely popular female pop band) in 2002.
The reason why Anna left such a successful band was quite simple – she found out that she was expecting a baby. She took a hiatus in her career and gave birth to a lovely daughter named Alina.
In 2006, Anna began acting in a film “The Tunguska meteorite”. The shooting was taking place for 4 months in the real taiga. Anna’s role was that of a popular singer who becomes a hostage in some mysterious woods, after the helicopter crash. This movie launched her acting career, even though she had previously appeared in a New Years movie called “Cinderella” and “The Evenings on the Homestead” based on a book by Gogol.
In 2008 she acted in “The Power of Attraction”. This comedy 110 episode series was broadcast in many countries with big success. Anna’s latest work in the movies is a film named Moscow.ru.
Anna also started a solo-singer career. Her first video for the song “My Heart” reached the top of the charts.
As a result, she won an “Audience Appreciation” Award at the “5 STARS” Sochi Music Festival.
Afterwards, she did a video for her song “The Very Best Girl” and “I Am Getting Used”. Both videos were huge hits in Russia and Ukraine.
But TV wouldn’t let Anna go. TV-Star Superstar, the most expensive show in the country’s history, went on air on the “Ukraine” Channel in 2008.
In 2009 Anna was named the best TV Anchor of the country by “Elle” magazine.

Besides, Anna hosted “The New Songs About the Most Essential Thing” – a big live concert in which the best 50 performers of the country participated.
She also took part in ‘Two Singing Stars’ and ‘Stars on Ice’ shows and entertained the public with a creative performance.
Additionally, her first book “The Art of Seduction” is still a bestseller in Russia. The theme of this book should be of no surprise to her audience – several years in a row Anna remains receiver of ‘Sexiest Female Award’ as well as “Most beloved star” award.
She was also named ‘The Most Desirable Female Performer’ in Russia.
The readers of FHM magazine named her one of the sexiest women in the world of 2012! She won the 2nd place, the first place took Mila Kunis.
