London: Anna Chapman, the glamorous spy deported from the US along with nine others, is to become a leader of a youth wing of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin-led United Russia political party, a media report said.

28-year-old Chapman, who was expelled from the US in a historic spy swap in June, is to be appointed at a congress of Molodaya Gvardiya (Young Guard) in Moscow, Britain`s `The Daily Telegraph` quoted sources as telling the Russian media.

Chapman`s role in the pro-Putin youth organisation will involve working with "patriots and young businesspeople", the report said.

"Chapman will become the head of one of the new governing bodies of Molodaya Gvardiya," a source in the organisation was quoted as saying.
Prime Minister Putin rallied to the defence of Chapman and the nine other Russian spies after they were expelled from the US and had promised them all "important" work in their homeland.
Chapman, who ran a real estate business in New York as cover for her real role in Russia`s foreign intelligence service, had attended the same technology forum as Russian President Dmitry Medvedev last week.

Anna to pose nude in January issue of Playboy

She has been exposed yet again, but this time in a way that would appeal to her fans worldwide - Russian spy Anna Chapman will be seen naked in the January issue of Playboy.

Chapman did pose for the Russian edition of Maxim magazine in October.

"Seduction, like love and friendship are the same everywhere," she told Maxim in Russian.

"Most men are divided in three categories: primitive, those that only want sex; smarter, those that want to be loved, and [the] last group -- those that not only want to be loved, they also need that this love will be the biggest and most amazing feeling in your life," she said.
