I have always acted on the principle that the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
The United States may be an enemy of Russia, and I love my country very much. But I consider this Russian government to be the enemy of the Russian people.
Vladimir Putin and his cronies have plundered our country and are oppressing its people. Corruption and extortion is all around. Russians feel intimidated and fear repression by the state. We have a resource-rich country yet our people are poor.
So I decided to help the US as a friend.
