Russian spy Anna Chapman has posed in her underwear for a racy photo shoot in a men's magazine after receiving one of Russia's highest medals for espionage.
The redhead appears on the cover of the Maxim magazine November issue that goes on sale on Thursday, sporting nylon and lace and wielding a revolver. It includes Chapman in the list of this year's 100 sexiest women.
A trailer on www.maximonline.ru promises more pictures and Chapman's first interview since she was deported from the United States.
"Anna has done more to excite patriotism in Russians than our football team and the Bulava missile put together," the magazine claimed.
President Dmitry Medvedev gave the country's highest state honors to ten "sleeper agents" involved in this summer's spy scandal on Monday.
Ten Russians were expelled from the United States in late June after pleading guilty to conspiring to act as unregistered foreign agents but were swapped with four men accused by the Kremlin of spying for the West.
