A man in August reads Your Day newspaper featuring sexy photos of spy Anna Chapman.
Russia’s Anna Chapman may be the highest-profile spy since Valerie Plame – except, of course, Plame didn’t seek out the spotlight.
Chapman, who was ousted from the United States this summer in a spy swap with her homeland, will appear in her underwear in Russia’s version of Maxim, a popular men’s magazine.
According to Russia’s state-run RIA Novosti, Chapman will appear on the magazine’s cover armed with a revolver and wearing nylon and lace. A photo on the Russian Maxim website shows her sitting on a red couch with two shooting targets in the background.
A trailer for the issue comes off like an ad for a cheesy James Bond action flick, except with more exposed breast and buttock – if you can imagine.
“Anna has done more to excite patriotism in Russians than our football team and the Bulava missile put together,” RIA Novosti quoted the magazine as saying.
Some things may be lost in translation here. The Bulava missile has suffered failure in more than half of its 13 tests, and the Russian soccer squad never even took the pitch in the World Cup after being dispatched by Slovenia in qualifying.
Details, schmeetails, right? All they really needed to say was, “Anna Chapman in lingerie.”
The magazine boasts it will be her first interview since she and nine fellow “sleeper agents” were rounded up by U.S. authorities in June. They later pleaded guilty to failing to register as foreign agents and were ferried out of the country in a prisoner exchange reminiscent of the Cold War.
Chapman has been treated as a national hero since her homecoming. In a ceremony at the Kremlin on Monday, Chapman and her compatriots received top honors from President Dmitry Medvedev.
Russian media report she is now a consultant for an investment bank and was spotted about two weeks ago at the Baikonur Cosmodrome space station in Kazakhstan working on exploration projects.
Oh, and don't forget her iPhone poker app ... seriously.
Makes me proud of my country! Look at her–she is femaile James Bond. There should be movies made about this :) No, really, she was one of the top New York party-girls for years and only this spring somebody caught up that she might have a hidden agenda.
For all you Russia-haters, show me your hot spies!!! Yeah, you don't even know what happened to the US spies that were released from Russia.
meh....What else is she going to do? She sucked as a spy and she's hot.
I don't think its a good idea to have a spy wife.
maybe if they love us back, then thats a different story..seems spy always hide staff from you.
Here's the way I look at it. She got off lucky. If she'd of been an ugly hag, or there wasn't other spies to trade with, she'd of spent the rest of her life in prison, undoubtedly. So, with that said, first off, she's hot as heck and I can't blame her for doing a nude photo shot to put some money in her pocket, and if she didn't have that two faced look about her, I'd consider dating the chic lol ! j/k.. she's got too much baggage for me.
Excellent PR move from Russian side. Being Russian spy is hot and glamorous.
Man, we will never get over this, will we? As long as someone did something wrong in the past, they will never be able to get over it. Stop calling eachother pigs and bigots.
And I thought a smoking hot chick was something that everyone from every country in the world could agree on...
My, what a refreshing, non-biased, unbigoted point of view. Awfully nice of you, Mr. Hilter!
And you said that because you know Russians how? I am Russian and I would like for you to keep your bigoted opinions to yourself.
@ Olya- If you're Russian then you need to mind your own news.
@James, Yeah, because ONLY Americans have the right to have an opinion about the whole world.
at least she is not fat like most americans...hahaha...i wud choose a sciopath over a fat a$$ any day...hahahahaha
Being called a bigot by a Russian – that's rich. The most xenophobic tribe on the planet.
Meat, you are an imbecile. As soon as can get your IP from the logs, I can have a personal conversation with you about being a sociopath. Run.
