In light of Olga Kurylenko's appearance in the most recent Bond movie, yesterday, Melik Kaylan of Forbes Magazine offered up a "meditation on Russian women" and more specifically a description of "Natasha Syndrome" - the "nubile tide of female adventurers swept out of the former Soviet geosphere to seek their fortune in hard currency around the world by deploying their charms."
Kaylan gives a short history of Natasha Syndrome and offers this ballsy conclusion:
Indeed, it appears that a branch of the Communist Party of Moscow has publicly condemned Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko for sleeping with the enemy in the form of James Bond. But perhaps it's a publicity hoax. Still, as the petrodollars dry up, the wheel may spin another quarter. Who will they turn to for solace next? Georgians?
Thank you for the story, Igor, who offered this comment: "...the very last phrase will cost the author a lifetime Russian visa ban..."
