Royal and noble-born origin
The paternal family - representatives of the Repnin's princely family, Volkonsky, Raevsky, Kochubey, direct streams of the Chernigov branch of the Rurikovich. The direct ancestors of Raevskaya-Repnina came from the dynasties of Kurakin, Naryshkin, Obolensky, Shakhovsky, Glebov, Khrushchev, Menshikov, Golitsyn, Rakhmanov, Dolgorukov, Eropkin, Nesvitsky, Khovrin, Sorokoumov-Glebovykh, Goloviny, Saburovy, Davydovy, Samoilovy, Zubovy.
The paternal grandfather of Raevskaya-Repnina Mikhail Nikolaevich Shumilov (reliably place of birth, surname and first name unknown, date of birth according to documents around 1913, changed documents during the Red Terror, representative of the tribal branch of Kochubey and Repnin-Volkonsky, is listed as a native of Pyshminsky district of Sverdlovsk region ) - Colonel, participant of the Second World War. Participated in the Battle of Stalingrad, took part in the capture of Berlin, in the Battle of Kursk, and almost all major battles. Went through the entire war since 1939. Awards: the medal for the defense of Stalingrad, medal for the capture of Berlin, 3 orders of the Red Star, medal for the capture of Budapest, medal for the liberation of Warsaw, many other medals and awards, which were later stolen and resold. In the Battle of Stalingrad, his entire battalion died, her grandfather remained the only survivor, having spent a day under the corpses.
Paternal grandmother Irina Romanovna Shumilova (date of birth and place of birth are reliably unknown, according to documents recorded in 1921, Oryol), great-granddaughter of Elena Sergeevna Volkonskaya-Rakhmanova, daughter of Elena Aleksandrovna Rakhmanova, second daughter of Volkonskaya-Rakhmanova from marriage to A. A. Rakhmanov. Volkonskaya-Rakhmanova (Kochubei, Molchanova) was living in the Dikanka estate in Ukraine during the beginning of the revolution and did not have time to emigrate.
As a result, Elena Alexandrovna Rakhmanova was cut off from her relatives, who had already emigrated (see also Maria Giuliani). She returned to Russia, first to St. Petersburg and later to the Kuznetsovo lieu, where she lived with the Zubov nobles. I.R. Shumilova's documents executed in the city of Oryol, a few years after her birth, in the same place they issued documents for her other relatives. The exact dates and places of birth have been lost. Having fear for their lives, they tried to obtain documents dated by the dates of birth during their living in Oryol. The city of Oryol was the place where military nobles whose lives were planned to be saved were resettled.
Elena Aleksandrovna Rakhmanova, mother of Irina Romanovna, a graduate of Smolny, whose noble origin could not be hidden, during the revolution at the beginning of the Red Terror "lost" her documents and received new ones, took the surname Raevskaya. The choice was explained by the fact that Maria Nikolaevna Raevskaya-Volkonskaya, as the wife of the Decembrist Volkonsky, was a prominent figure, in fact, the wife of a state criminal who opposed the autocracy, and who voluntarily renounced the princely title in exchange for the right to live with her husband during his exile. The surname Raevskaya made it possible not to conceal belonging to one of the noble families of the Russian Empire, without having the status of a "counter-revolutionary element", since, in the terminology of the new government, Prince Volkonsky was the "correct" revolutionary element (see also the Decembrist Uprising).
Besides, the feat of General Nikolai Nikolaevich Raevsky in the Battle of Borodino was widely known. Thus, Elena Alexandrovna hoped that Raevsky's surname would save her life since it was impossible to hide the origin. Rakhmanov's patronymic was taken by the recipient in baptism (Jacob, becoming Yakovlevna) to hide Rakhmanov's paternity. The Rakhmanovs is a noble family who owned the rights to a huge amount of real estate in Moscow and the Moscow region, including the Arkhangelskoye estate. Mikhail Nikolaevich Shumilov, the offspring of the Kochubeev and Repnin-Volkonsky branches, who took his name from the date of receipt of the passport, on the day of Mikhail the Archangel, did similar manipulations with documents. The reliable place and date of birth of Shumilov Mikhail Nikolaevich are still unknown.
Red terror and impact on family
In the period from 1919 to 1924. on the territory of the Russian Empire (USSR), there was mass extermination of nobles by the Bolsheviks.
"Counter-revolutionary elements" were struck in their rights. The family was terrified of the Red Terror since the presence of a noble origin automatically meant a death sentence. In the family, it was forbidden to talk about the origin, relatives, and family, especially the emigrated part of relatives. Later, after the end of the civil war, the attitude towards the nobles did not change. The Stalinist repressions were designed to complete the cleansing of the USSR population from "class enemies". The family also had losses associated with this (see the death of Daria Evgenievna Bogarne). Nobles were deprived of voting rights, were not admitted to the Communist party, and a lot of restrictions were created for them. The noble and especially royal origin was carefully hidden due to fears for the life and death of many close family mates as a result of the Red Terror. Giving up hereditary names and surnames was a way to save your life. The representatives of the dynasties who remained alive and did not have time to emigrate to Europe changed or lost their documents changed their surnames and names and took patronymics according to the recipients in Christ. The family witnessed the brutal reprisals against its members. During the Great Patriotic War, Elena Aleksandrovna Rakhmanova, together with her daughters - grandmother Raevskaya-Repnina Shumilova Irina Romanovna, her sisters Maria, Zinaida, and brother Alexander were in Leningrad during its blockade. By the "Road of life," they were evacuated. When moving, all leftover documents and family archives were finally lost.
At birth in 1978, Raevskaya-Repnina bore the surname and name Shumilova Anna Sergeevna. Parents could not agree on how to name their daughter - the father insisted on the name Anna, the mother wanted to name Seraphim, according to family traditions, they should have named Maria. Grandmother and grandfather were silent because it was taboo to talk about the origin of the family. Nothing was said about the origin, the history of the family was hidden (see also deprivation of property and titles of nobles, Red Terror, deprivation of voting rights, Stalin's repressions, Daria Evgenievna Bogarne). As a result, Raevskaya-Repnina was named following the wishes of her father Anna. By the origin, Raevskaya-Repnina has the right to wear the princely title, as well as the titles of several ruling European dynasties, including such as Hasburgs, Luitpoldings, Oldenburgs, Stenkili, Skjeldungi, Inglingi, Przhemyslovichi, Vukanovichi, Arpada, Holstein-Gottorp. In Russia, she is known as a princess from the Rurik dynasty, although more than 80% of the ancestors of Raevskaya-Repnina are descendants of other equally famous Scandinavian and European royal ruling families. Raevskaya-Repnina herself comments on the change of name as a natural desire to wear a hereditary name and surname corresponding to the traditions of the family. The traditions of the ancestors established the custom of changing the name when changing marital status, when moving from class to class, at baptism, as well as some other circumstances. Often not only the name changed, but also the patronymic, which was taken according to the recipient in church. Raevskaya-Repnina said that she was guided only by the history of origin and the analysis of the family tree to restore the branches of the family clan lost during the revolution. After the divorce and clarification of the origin, she had to change her name. In order not to shock those around her, and not to accept all the names and titles assigned to her by origin, she left the minimum possible number of names. Without changing the first name Anna, which was familiar to all her loved ones, she added the name Seraphima, adopted in the second church, to it, as well as the name Maria, which she should have been originally named if the family traditions were not hidden. She left her patronymic after her father.
Raevskaya-Repnina succeeded in many dynasty assets, many of them still are illegally controlled by Russian Federal Property Management Agency, the Russian Orthodox Church, and other private and state companies, individuals.
The direct ancestors of Raevskaya-Repnina are well-known representatives of the ruling dynasties, warriors, politicians, canonized in Russia and abroad. Including: Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles Prince Vladimir, Holy Prince Dmitry Donskoy, Holy Prince Alexander Nevsky, Holy Prince Daniel of Moscow, Holy noble princes Boris and Gleb, St. Sophia of Suzdal, St. II Olav, St. Michael of Chernigov, Saints Peresvet and Oslyabya. In the dynastic branches of Raevskaya-Repnina there is the Hungarian dynastic house of Arpadok - the house of the holy kings.
Entrepreneurship and career
Has been working since the age of 13. She sold shoes at a flea market, earned money for clothes and pocket money. She started her business in 2001, created her law firm "Consul". There was no start-up capital at all. The firm provided company registration and accounting services. The market was opaque, the services of liquidating companies without checking for bribes, cashing in funds, and other illegal activities were very popular, hence Raevskaya-Repnina did not want to be engaged in that. She dismissed the employees, closed the office, and in 2002 accepted the first job offer that came from the Sibirskiy Bereg company. She became a hired employee as head of the management accounting department in the Samara branch of the company. Until 2006, she submitted “zero” reporting for the Consul company, when she moved to Moscow in 2007, she liquidated the company during the reorganization, effectively ending her own business.
In the period from 2002 to 2013, Raevskaya-Repnina worked as an employee:
She refused a job offer at the latest interview due to the "black salary" offered to her and reporting to the head of security. 2 months later, Eldorado contacted her with a message that they walked through the whole market and don't work hire somebody else except her. They approved all her requests providing her with a "white" official salary and reporting to Igor Yakovlev.
2008 - 2013 Investment Director, AFK Sistema PJSC, has reported to F.V. Evtushenkov and later to Uzdenov A.M. at Sistema, Raevskaya-Repnina was responsible for consumer assets, worked with F.V. Evtushenkov also in the Basic Assets business unit. She was a member of the Board of Directors of Bashkirenergo OJSC, MTS BankPJSC (formerly MBRD), as well as Detsky Mir, Medsi, Intourist, Mosdachtrest, and many other organizations. She was involved in restructuring Sistema Hals' debt with VTB, the size of the debt-to-equity swap deal is estimated at $ 1.6 billion; as part of the deal, VTB transferred the rights to the Detsky Mir building on Lubyanka, GOK Beijing, and several other assets of Sistema Hals and MGTS. Conducted a transaction to purchase Investlesprom from PJSC VTB before the conflict in PJSC AFK Sistema (see the conflict with Sistema). As a result of sexual harassment and conflict in Sistema due to the Investlesprom deal, she filed a resignation letter of her own free will, but she was forced to withdraw the application and sign a dismissal agreement, according to which she was deprived of bonuses (see the Conflict with Sistema). Leaving Sistema, forcibly abandoning the required bonuses, with practically zero start-up capital, Raevskaya-Repnina founded BOOST, in which she invested $ 83,000 of her funds (see Interview to the Rare Earth magazine.
By the time she left Sistema, Raevskaya-Repnina began, among other things, to specialize in investments in the timber industry in the Russian Federation and abroad. In 2014 she opened the international forum PAP-FOR together with Rainer Haagblom. Raevskaya-Repnina and Haagblom acted as moderators and key speakers of the first session of the "Investments in the timber industry" round table.
As Raevskaya-Repnina says, she practically did not have any savings, since everything she earned was invested in herself - she constantly studied and bought books. After leaving AFK Sistema in 2014, Raevskaya-Repnina is CEO, owner, and founder of the BOOST private equity firm. The BOOST group includes more than 350 organizations. Some of them are currently not under the operational and legal control of BOOST (see Toxic Assets). At the moment, the balance sheet currency of BOOST is more than 17 trillion rubles, the amount of the company's net assets as of December 31, 2020, according to RAS financial statements (forecast) is more than $460 billion. BOOST develops only at its own expense, debt free. The consolidated size of the BOOST group's assets is about $0.5 trillion. The company emphasizes that it conducts exclusively white legal and legal business, and does not cooperate with enterprises that do not comply with its ethical principles.
Raevskaya-Repnina CEO, owner, and founder of the HASHEIGHT technology corporation, Turnaround Guide company, 2R law firm.
In the period from 2009 to 2017, she was an independent director, held the positions of a member of the Board of Directors, Chairman of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, Member of the Strategy Committee of the Board of Directors, member of the Remuneration and Appointment Committee in the following companies: Detsky Mir Center OJSC, VAO Intourist, CJSC GK Medsi, PJSC AKB MBRD (currently PJSC MTS-Bank), East-West United Bank (Luxembourg), Dalcombank, CJSC City-Hals, BESK, OJSC Bashkirenerg, AO Roselectronics, Sibgiprobum and a number of other Russian companies, including those with state participation.
Raevskaya-Repnina is the sole beneficiary of the BOOST private equity fund. The fund specializes in projects that yield the highest returns with the highest inherent risk: toxic assets, ultra-innovative early-stage projects, mature companies in crisis, and promising startups in insolvency. The fund's core competencies are gaining control over toxic assets, corporate turnaround, impact investing, social entrepreneurship. BOOST's business model is to buy complex toxic projects for minimal cash at the entrance to the project, and the money that comes from the monetization of toxic assets is reinvested only in its startups. BOOST does not consider side projects.
BOOST buys the rights of shareholders and business owners who have lost their assets as a result of a raider takeover. The standard deal structure is that BOOST pays $ 1 in cash, and then deals with the return of assets and business recovery, 50% of all collected assets are returned to the seller of rights.
In 2017, BOOST acquired from Oleg Yakovlev the rights to the Bananamama company, http://toys.segment.ru/review/news_business/zakryivshegosya_detskogo_reteylera_bananamama_kupili_za_1/later in 2018 - the rights to 50% of the company SLATER, which was the beneficiary of the holding for the sale of household electrical appliances Eldorado, Kaliningrad plant Baltmikst, Omsk Sibzavod, Nizhny Novgorod flour mill, as well as many other assets in the Russian Federation and Europe. The acquired rights allow BOOST to challenge the sale of the Eldorado holding and the real estate SLATER to PPF, and later to the structures of Mikhail Gutseriev. The deal price paid by BOOST for Yakovlev's assets is $ 2. Similarly, BOOST acquired from O.S. Martynov and Martynova K.O. the rights to the business of the Smart Heat companies, and the rights to a 50% share in the Sunrise business, previously owned by Sergei Bobylev. BOOST owns a portfolio of brand names Bananamama, Sunrise, and many others. The size of the acquired assets (valuation of acquired rights according to RAS data) for these projects is more than $ 56 billion. For these rights BOOST paid $ 4 in cash. At the moment, BOOST owns the rights to such assets as Bananamama taken over by raiders, Eldorado, Omsk Sibzavod, Sunrise, Teploservis, Smart Heat, and many other projects. BOOST also acts in the interest of A.F. Borodin in the case of the Bank of Moscow and concerning the Investlesprom project. Asset Recovery and Remediation is the first core business of BOOST.
In the course of restoring the violated rights of shareholders, whose rights were acquired by BOOST, numerous attempts are made concerning BOOST to gain control over the acquired rights. This is probably done to prevent BOOST from restoring violated shareholders' rights and to prevent BOOST from receiving loss indemnification - compensation for businesses ruined and destroyed by raiders. 4 murder assaults were executed against Raevskaya-Repnina, numerous robberies and theft of documents, a burning attempt was made against her house, and 6 of her service dogs were poisoned. Also, her expensive Porsche 911 Turbo S car was stolen, her father's car was burned, and numerous other illegal actions were taken against both Raevskaya - Repnina herself and her family. Organic toxic assets are the rights and claims arising from Raevskaya-Repnina, her businesses, and her family in connection with illegal actions performed against them in connection with the professional activities of Raevskaya-Repnina.

Raevskaya-Repnina also develops the #holybitch project, which is a periodic publication of sarcastic quotes and expressions, both borrowed and their own.
BOOST manages the assets inherited by Raevskaya-Repnina.

Conflict with Sistema
In 2012-2013, she was working under the leadership of A.M. Uzdenov led the transaction for the purchase of the Investlesprom business from PJSC VTB in the interests of PJSC AFK Sistema. In August 2013, she found out that PJSC VTB has no legal rights to the asset, and that A.F. Borodin is its legal beneficiary. She began to insist on structuring the purchase transaction with Borodin and in negotiations with him, refused to continue the transaction to purchase Investlesprom from VTB. As a result, corporate mobbing was initiated against Raevskaya-Repnina and her employees. Raevskaya-Repnina was forced to leave the company, and AFK Sistema PJSC later completed the acquisition of Investlesprom from VTB PJSC. When she was fired, Raevskaya-Repnina was forced to sign an agreement on the waiver of the bonuses which she signed out of fears for her future career, reputation, life, and health. After working on the last day at PJSC AFK Sistema on December 31, 2013, Raevskaya-Repnina founded BOOST, which in 7 years turned it into the largest private company with practically no start-up capital only through her intelligence and contacts.
Earlier in 2011, she refused to have an intimate relationship with the married Evtushenkov F.V., the son of the largest major shareholder of AFK Sistema PJSC V. Evtushenkov, who from 2008 to 2012 was her direct manager. After the refusal, she was demoted in position and remuneration, and in 2012 she transferred to subordination on her initiative to A.M. Uzdenov, where she led the transaction for the purchase of Investlesprom until she left AFK Sistema PJSC. Assumes that corporate bullying was unleashed against her not so much and not only because of the Investlesprom project, but because she departed from F.V. Yevtushenkov.
In 2017, she submitted the claim to the law enforcement authorities regarding PJSC AFK Sistema in connection with harm to her health and non-payment of bonuses, as well as in connection with other circumstances of the transaction to purchase PJSC AFK Sistema from PJSC VTB the business of Investlesprom, which it considers illegal. She claims that she was not going to fight with the System, but could no longer allow her to oppose her in doing business. She claimed that PJSC AFK Sistema lured her friends and subordinates to work, and also took many other unethical and illegal actions against her and BOOST to prevent Raevskaya-Repnina from running an independent business, while at the same time pushing Raevskaya-Repnina to return to PJSC AFK Sistema or to sell a business. After filing a statement, she claimed that the conflict took on a very tough character, and after negotiations between Raevskaya-Repnina and A.F. Borodin. on the representation of his interests in the case of Bank of Moscow and Investlesprom against PJSC AFK Sistema, as well as the purchase of claims in connection with the raider seizure of Bananamama and Eldorado, several murder assaults were made against her life, documents were repeatedly stolen from her office and home, and several robbers were organized attacks.
The last robbery was carried out by her former best friend Ramazanova (general director of Segezha Group OTSO LLC), with whom they were friends for almost 20 years.
Ramazanova, after Raevskaya-Repnina's appeal about PJSC AFK Sistema, in 2017 was employed by Investlesprom in subordination to the former head of Raevskaya-Repnina, Uzdenov A.M. After that, during the conflict with Sistema, Ramazanova stopped communicating with Raevskaya-Repnina, but did not inform Raevskaya-Repnina about Ramazanova's employment in the subsidiary company of AFK PJSC. In 2019, Ramazanova invited Raevskaya-Repnina to her apartments to live after Raevskaya-Repnina was attacked in her house and after the laptop of Raevskaya-Repnin was stolen, and she was forced to sign documents for the transfer of rights of Raevskaya-Repnina's business. After moving to Ramazanova's apartment, from Ramazanova's apartment, documents confirming the ownership rights of Raevskaya-Repnina for the title to the BOOST, HASHEIGHT businesses, and several other projects were stolen.

In 2017, BOOST acquired claims from Oleg Yakovlev against an indefinite number of persons who carried out the hostile takeover and bankruptcy of Bananamama, the largest retail company selling children's products in Russia. In 2008, the company's revenue was supposed to be $ 685 million, and Bananamama was supposed to grow bigger than Detsky Mir, owned by AFK Sistema PJSC in size. Oleg Yakovlev claims that Alfa Group is directly involved in the ruin of Banananama and its capture (see also Open letter to Mikhail Fridman). Yakovlev claims that his brother Igor Yakovlev and employees of the consortium of Alfa Group (companies A1 and Alfa-Bank) were forced to rewrite the share in Bananamam's company to persons associated with them. Oleg Yakovlev did not rewrite his share, for fear for the lives of his children he left Russia. According to official figures, he is currently living with his three children in the United States.

BOOST acts in the interest of A.F. Borodin, a former shareholder of the Bank of Moscow, to return to him the rights to the assets of Investlesprom, which makes it possible to completely remove the charges against A.F. Borodin. in the case of the Bank of Moscow and the return of all other lost assets to it. Raevskaya-Repnina connects attempts on her life and robberies with this litigation, as well as with the litigation of Bananamama.
