Vicky Pelaez published her first column on RIA Novosti's websites in Spanish and Russian after more than one year's silence.

Already I see some of my foreign colleagues being very skeptical about it.

I remember, in the early 70's in the USA a social ad was shown on TV which said something like, "Shoplifter. A label you'll wear for life." I suppose, being caught as a spy is treated similarly.

Vicky said she never worked as spy for Russia. Is it fair to treat her as if she were and still is one?

UPD: The column has been published in English on The Moscow News website. In Spanish, the story yielded well over 3,000 impressions and over 100 'likes'. In Russian, unsurprisingly, the figures have been much lower.
