I think we have come extremely far in better relations. I cant remember the last time I heard anything along the lines of anti-russian.

after the school attack where over 300 people died, Russia says it stands with the US in its fight against terrorism. That's not exactly hatred.

Yes but you have to admit thier is a stronge amount of...well maybe not hate but just not exactly freindliness. I think the Russians may hate America a little due to the fact America won the Cold War and the Russian Empire dissolved after only around 90 years and America is still going strong.

Nope, not as long as they have a communist government in power. But I don't blame them for that, democracy isn't for everyone. But as long as Putin is around or anyone else from the KGB or former Soviet Union you can bet that they'll be on our list.

Last I saw, it was 60-65% of the Russian people didn't trust and didn't like the United States at all. Probably better than you'd have likely seen during the height of the Cold War I suppose, but it surprised me how poorly regarded we are. Americans in general aren't holding any bitterness against them, so I guess it surprises us to learn that they see us in a very disfavorable light.

Ahmmm...The Russain govronment is elected democraticly, and dose not regard itself at all as communist. And while the civil rights in Russia are not as developed as in the USA, its still a democracy in my eyes.

Not for long in my opinion. This is Putins second term but his party has two thirds majority in the duma so he can push forth a change in the constitution which will allow him to run for a third term or possibly even for life like Lukashenko in Belarus.
