Putin’s Latest Weapon Against Critics? Sex Tapes.

She’s from Russia with love — and armed with sex toys, drugs and secret videotape.

At least eight prominent Kremlin critics have been caught in a hidden camera sex sting by a sultry young Moscow model in what they say is a classic KGB-style “honey trap.”

Little is known about the woman, Ekaterina Gerasimova, except that she’s in her 20s, has dazzling blue eyes, uses the social networking Web nickname “Mu Mu” and has disgraced a growing list of pols and media types in videos that are surfacing on the Internet.

Her latest victim is satirist Viktor Shenderovich, who is married and wrote for a popular TV program that used clowns to bash Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and his Kremlin cronies.
