“Katya,” or Ekaterina Gerasimova is an amateur model in Moscow.

New York, April 30 (ANI): This one is straight out of James Bond film 'From Russia with Love,' in which the Soviet lay "honey trap" on the super spy, using a sexy seductress.

Buzz up!
A woman known as "Katya" has been luring Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's critics into having sex with her and making their videos.


Her latest victim is satirist Viktor Shenderovich, whose sex tape has surfaced on the net.

Shenderovich, who is a married man, writes for a popular TV program that uses clowns to mock Prime Minister Putin and his associates.

He revealed that "Katya", a woman in 20s, pretending to be a journalist lured him to a Moscow apartment.

"She made it clear that she was interested in me as a man. I should have realized this was some sort of danger sign," the New York Post quoted him as saying.

Also, videos of two extremist dissidents - Eduard Limonov and Alexander Potkin- having sex with "Katya" have emerged.

Potkin, 33, who is married said: "Now you see that there are no guarantees of having your private life protected."

Now, more anti-Putin front men, such as Yury Shevchuk, from a popular Russian rock group
, DDT, and Ilya Yashin, a leader of the Solidarity opposition group, fear their videos will also surface.

Yashin claims that he enjoyed a romp with Katya in 2008 after meeting her through a Russian social network.

She apparently invited him for a threesome with her female roommate, a model named Nastya, using sex toys and handcuffs.

However, Yashin said he left the apartment when she offered him cocaine. He said he asked her if he was being taped but she denied it.

He said: "The only thing I can be blamed for in this provocation is, I had sex with two girls."

Meanwhile, Shenderovich joked that Putin's security services discriminated in its treatment of him and Yashin.

He wrote: "This means young oppositionists get two free girls and a portion of cocaine, while 50-year-olds like us only get one and no toys."

However, Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, has dismissed Shenderovich's allegations.

He said: "We'd like it if he faced his problems alone." (ANI)

Ekaterina Gerasimova ... filmed in compromising situations.

Modern Mata Hari leaves Kremlin critics exposed

MOSCOW: She has piercing blue eyes, a girl-next-door face and likes to do a little amateur modelling, yet according to those who have fallen for her charms, Ekaterina Gerasimova is also the Kremlin's most effective secret agent and a latter-day Mata Hari.

Her mission, it is claimed, is to discredit prominent Kremlin critics by luring them into compromising situations using vintage KGB honeytrap techniques.

Offering her body, sex, and drugs from cocaine to marijuana as an inducement, ''Katya'', as she is usually known, has tried and often succeeded in bedding at least half-a-dozen high-profile Kremlin critics and other political figures. The damage to reputations has varied from serious to negligible depending on her victim's marital status and response.

Her latest scalp was Viktor Shenderovich, a journalist and the scriptwriter on Russia's former version of the Spitting Image television satire.

Mr Shenderovich, who is married and has a daughter, admits that he slept with Ms Gerasimova but claims he was set up by the Kremlin.

His credibility as an authoritative critic of the Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, appears to have been at least partly dented and his marriage is reportedly in trouble.

The editor of Russian Newsweek magazine also fell under Ms Gerasimova's spell and was filmed in his underpants chopping up what looked like cocaine after having sex.

A clutch of anti-Kremlin opposition figures and activists, including a man resembling the leader of the National Bolshevik Party, have also been caught in flagrante delicto.

But unlike Soviet times, when the secret service used compromising material to blackmail, Ms Gerasimova's exploits have been widely publicised in grainy videos on the internet.

The footage is often accompanied by mocking music and subtitles. It has taken a few weeks for the victims to realise that they have all been set up by the same woman.

Yet little is known about Ms Gerasimova beyond that she is in her twenties and is registered with an online modelling agency. Nicknamed ''Moo-Moo'' after the surname she uses on a social networking site, men said she used different first names and was highly persistent in her advances.

Some of the men said they knew something was wrong when she suddenly produced drugs or, in one case, asked a young opposition leader to join her and a female friend in experimenting with a large selection of sex toys.

She now seems to have disappeared, but at least one other prominent Kremlin critic has said he expects a similar video featuring himself and the woman to reach the internet soon.
