Putin Appoints Playboy Playmate to Russian Parliament

Posted by on Dec 16, 2011 at 11:06 am

There’s a sudden new interest in Russian politics. It’s not hard to see why.

A Playboy playmate has been elected as one of Vladimir Putin’s MPs in the Russian parliament, giving him some cheer after all the recent protests against election fraud by his party.

Maria Kozhevnikova, 27, an actress, posed nude for the Russian edition of the magazine two years ago soon after breaking up from a boyfriend.

She featured on the cover and seven revealing pages were devoted to her inside the magazine.

‘Playboy magazine invites readers to meet Maria and get to know her better,’ boasted the title.

The daughter of a Soviet ice hockey player, Alexander Kozhevnikov, who was twice an Olympic champion, Maria was a lead singer in Russian group called Love Stories before taking on film roles.

She is now best known as a star in Univers, a TV sitcom about student life.

Like former spy and glamour icon Anna Chapman, she was a member of the Young Guard of Putin’s political party United Russia, which is currently facing allegations of vote-rigging after this month winning a narrow overall majority in parliament.

I suspect she’ll be quite popular.

    I guess if they are going to live in a backwards hell hole, they might as well enjoy life’s simple pleasures.

    I’d exchange this commie rep for my current one (Barbara Lee) and ask to be on her mailing list.
