Anna Chapman, the young beauty involved in the Russian Spies ring, didn’t fall far from the family tree. It turns out her father was a well-known Russian diplomat. According to the New York Daily News, Chapman’s real name is Anya Kushchenko, and she’s the daughter of Vasily Kushchenko, a Russian diplomat who was staffed in his country’s African embassies. And that’s not all.
According to Chapman’s British ex-husband, Alex Chapman, Vasily was “high up in the K.G.B.”
“I felt she would have done anything for her dad,” Chapman told the Daily News. “When I saw that she had been arrested on suspicion of spying, it didn’t come as much of a surprise to be honest.”
Loyalty to your parents is nice, but this may be an instance of too much of a good thing.
