It seems the Russians never learn from their own mistakes. In 1939 they signed the non-aggression pact with Hitler and today they are buddies with Iran, Hizballah, Hamas and Syria. But I guess you can expect that from the leaders whose roots are in the regime that dealt with the Kronstadt rebellion,the collectivization, the Ukrainian famine, the Kirov murder, the great Purge of the thirties,the Show Trials, the Gulags, the Katyn massacre and the Doctors’ Plot. They have no clue whom they are dealing with just as they did not know then until June 22,1941.
