Ex-Russian spy Chapman accused of plagiarism
Moscow: Ex-Russian spy Anna Chapman is being accused of plagiarism.
Russian bloggers revealed on Tuesday that her column in the best-selling Komsomolskaya Pravda daily appears to have been copied from a book.
The 29-year-old who was deported from the United States last year along with nine other Russian sleeper agents has been keeping a high profile in Russia, modelling and taking a role in the pro-Kremlin youth movement.
In her column about the 19th century poet Alexander Pushkin who died in a duel with a French officer in 1837, Chapman mirrors an article in a book by pro-Kremlin spin doctor Oleg Matveyechev almost word-to-word, arguing that the 1917 revolution and the ensuing bloodshed could have been prevented if Pushkin had been around to write his "mature works”.
Chapman`s office was not immediately available for comment.
