Facebook followers wasted no time having fun with the espionage affair that has engulfed the UK.
A page on the social networking site set up under Katia Zatuliveter's name describes its host as "just a fun-loving Russian girl working at the heart of British Government".
The image is of a Lady Penelope-style cartoon character with apparently spoof postings, including one showing a picture of GCHQ, the government's intelligence-gathering complex in Cheltenham.
"I took this photo a while back of this lovely building in Cheltenham during one of my recent flying lessons" the message states.
There's also a picture of an airborne fighter jet, with the message: "Here's one for Ivan, my friend back home."
Another aerial view showing a townscape below adds: "Here's a snap I took of Aldermaston, a quaint village where they do research into nuclear weapons and germ warfare."
