In two tweets, the 31-year-old femme fatale model cum spy posted:
Snowden, will you marry me?!Although Chapman's proposal, being the spy that she was, is more ironic, Russian opposition activist Maria Baranova also proposed to him, tweeting,
NSA, will you look after our children?
I would also like to offer Snowden my heart and mostly my passport! Edward! Marry Me!She may have simply been mocking Chapman, based on her "also" comment, and a hint to the Wall Street Journal that she may not have been 100 percent serious.
Snowden, 30, is currently stuck in the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport. He arrived there on a flight from Hong Kong on June 23, two days after U.S. authorities unsealed a criminal indictment charging him with espionage. Transit zones are limbos that are technically "not" within a country.
Chapman, on the other hand, has become a model and celebrity in Russia since being ousted, along with nine other Russian spies, in 2010. She even posed for a 2010 issue of the Russian version of Maxim magazine.
Wikipedia notes that in April 2011, Chapman appeared on the runway as a catwalk model for Moscow Fashion Week at the Shiyan & Rudkovskaya show. In June of 2012, Chapman was again modelling on the runway for Antalya at the Dosso Dossi.
