Ex-Russian spy Anna Chapman proposes to Snowden on Twitter
MOSCOW - Reuters
A file picture taken on December 22, 2010 shows former Russian spy Anna Chapman attending a congress of a pro-Kremlin youth group Molodaya Gvardiya (The Young Guard) in Moscow. Chapman wrote on Twitter on July 3, 2013 "Snowden, will you marry me?". AFP PHOTO/ ALEXANDER NEMENOVNSA whistleblower Eric Snowden, has received a marriage proposal of sorts in a tweet from Anna Chapman, who was one of 10 Russian agents arrested in the United States and deported in a Cold war-style spy swap in 2010.
"Snowden, will you marry me?!" a posting on a Twitter account bearing Chapman's name and photograph said late on Wednesday.
After a few hours with no reply, a second tweet appeared.
"@nsa, will you look after our children?" it said, a wry reference, perhaps, to the surveillance powers of the U.S. National Security Agency.
Former NSA contractor Snowden is believed to have been living in a transit area in the Moscow airport since arriving on June 23. He has appealed to various countries for asylum.
