Straight out of 007: Bodyguards to die for

From the land of the world’s craziest game show (a real-life version of the video game Grand Theft Auto), I bring you another Russia delight: a corp of sexy female bodyguards-for-hire.

Run out of Moscow, the bodyguard agency provides sultry female bodyguards–many trained by the Soviet-era spy service, the KGB–to “give discreet protection to Moscow’s billionaires and their wives and mistresses.”

Here’s what the owner and top bodyguard of the corp, Anna Loginova (picture to your left), said about her service. “A normal man gets sick and tired of male bodyguards around him all the time. In addition, many restaurants now do not allow a guard inside. They can come in and check everything but then they are asked to wait in the lobby. In contrast, you can take female bodyguards inside, she will sit down at the table and nobody would guess that she’s a weapon herself – and can react appropriately in any dangerous situation.”

But this story doesn’t have a happy ending. 29-year old Loginova died this week while fighting off carjackers who were trying to make off with her Porsche.
