Former spy Chapman may receive top position in pro-Kremlin youth group

Former spy Anna Chapman may receive a top position in the youth arm of Russia’s ruling United Russia party, Molodaya Gvardia (Young Guard), website reported on Wednesday citing the group’s spokesman.

Chapman, who became known around the world after the Russian-U.S. spy row in June 2010, has been making a blitz political and show business career ever since. She was named a member of the Young Guard’s public council in late December. A month later, the racy red-headed spy debuted as a TV host in a documentary TV show.

On March 22, Chapman was nominated for the top position in the group’s public council, since only a group member may become a chairperson of its public council, quoted Young Guard’s Oleg Ptashkin as saying.

In early March, Chapman launched an official website, saying that “the perfection and meaningfulness of life can be achieved only through devotion and willingness to help people around me.”

Chapman also accepted a job as an adviser to the president of FondServiceBank and showed up at the launch of a Russian spacecraft.
