  5. The Russian nuclear physicist:

    It's my dream, i think the two countries can be allies, because together, we can do many things. Stepping on each other's toes won't be good for anyone. Edward Lozansky pointed to the support provided by Russia after 9/11, when Moscow helped facilitate transit of material for U.S. forces in Afghanistan, as an example of Russian cooperation. As the political relationship between America and Russia now founders, Lozansky, still Edward Lozansky, works behind the scenes, organizing scientific and cultural exchanges between the two countries. Meanwhile, people in Moscow say anti-Americanism is at an all-time high, worse even than it was back in Soviet days. A recent poll by the Levada Center in Moscow, which is as close as there is to an independent pollster, found 70 percent of Russians have a negative view of United States. It looks like anti-Americanism is a newly found synonym for Russian patriotism.
