Currently: Lopatkina, Tereshkina, Kondaurova, Skorik, Kolegova.   Also, Novikova has danced it, but I cannot remember how recently.  (Shirinkina also dances it, but she is on maternity leave.)  

I need to add to this list Anastasia Matvienko and Alina Somova, whose debuts in Raymonda I recently saw in St Petersburg.  Matvienko's debut was excellent: technically she was very good, and ,in my opinion, better than Kondaurova, Tereshkina and Skorik in the role  Alina Somova in my opinion is the best Raymonda.  Every variation was superb, and her sequence of entrechats quatre en pointe perfectly executed.  The whole dream scene with its beautiful variation was just exquisite and her expressions and general movement quality throughout just .... amazing.  Raymonda is a wonderful ballet!  :-)
