MOSCOW — A Russian bank said Monday that it hired the spy Anna Chapman to help with innovation in information technology.

The statement from FondServisBank was intended to explain Chapman's sudden appearance last week at a remote cosmodrome for the launch of a Russian-American crew. The bank works with aerospace companies.

With her flaming red hair and penchant for posting sultry photos of herself on social networking sites, Chapman is the most famous of the 10 sleeper spies arrested in US this summer and then sent back to Russia in a spy swap.

She has avoided the media and the public since her return, so her appearance at the launch site caused a sensation.

In the United States, she was accused of using her technological savvy in her work as a spy.
