Famed Russian spy Anna Chapman, who was deported by the United States earlier this year, posed in the Russian version of the US magazine, Maxim, reported MSNBC.

Photographs of Chapman scantily clad in lace and holding a handgun were featured on the magazine's website which said, "Anna Chapman has done more to excite Russian patriotism than the Russian soccer team," MSNBC quoted.

Russia's 'femme fatale'

The photos and an interview with the Russian secret agent will appear in the next issue of Maxim, which has named Chapman one of "Russia's 100 sexiest women."

Chapman has previously posed for Russian magazines, appeared at the take-off of a Russian space craft earlier this month, and was hired by a Russian bank as an advisor.

She is the only one of the 10 spies deported by the US in July to have made appearances in public. 

The Russian agents, who were accused of operating as sleeper agents in the US, were released to Russia in exchange for the release of four Russians imprisoned in the country who were accused of submitting information to the West.
