    A veteran cabaret singer claims she busted a young Vladimir Putin posing as a cruise ship security guard to spy for the KGB during the Cold War. Australian Lynn Rogers, 81, and several of her musician friends told DailyMail.com they remember the future despot skulking around during their performances on board the Aleksandr Pushkin ocean liner. British firm CTC Cruises leased the Soviet-built boat in 1985 to sail from Europe to Australasia, retaining its original Russian crew but bringing in Western entertainers. Lynn says one figure in particular stood out: a scowling, stony-faced security guard who followed her back to her cabin after every performance without uttering a word. Years later she couldn't believe her eyes when she saw the same creepy operative being installed as Russia's new president following Boris Yeltsin's 1999 resignation. 'When he came into power I remember looking at him and saying, "that guy was the security on the bloody cruise ship." I was in shock,' said Lynn, who lives on Australia's Gold Coast.  Russian President Vladimir Putin would have been in his early 30s and...
