Katia Zatuliveter Is Not A Russian Spy: She Got With Her ‘Teddy Bear’ Mike Hancock MP For Love
KATIA Zatuliveter, 26, is not a Russian spy. She was not told by Kremlin commanders to enter into negotiations with married Portsmouth South MP Mike Hancock, chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Russia and a member of the Defence Select Committee. Sure, they had a four-year affair. But she did it for love. She worked for Hancock as his parliamentary assistant.
A Special Immigration Appeals Commission has concluded that Zatuliveter is free to go.
Her diary called Hancock “my darling teddy bear“.
One diary entry of June 2006, two months after the pair met in St Petersburg, noted:
“I am in love… And he’s gone to Iraq today. I worry a lot, don’t know what to do, what to do with myself. What if he calls me? My darling Teddy Bear. There is no one more tender and more sincere than you. You are the first person in the world who is prepared to give me everything (well after my parents).”
Ooer. Comparing your lover to your mum and dad is, well, a bit ripe.
“I know now that he’s not particularly powerful. He’s a backbench MP. I wasn’t receiving much attention from men at the time.”
She says the relationship was “based on communication”.
What odds you will soon be reading about this communication in a tabloid interview with Miss Zatuliveter?
