Russia’s President Putin is believed to prefer Barack Obama over Mitt Romney in the upcoming US presidential election:

Why Putin Wants Obama to Win

Moscow Times  26 September 2012…

In March, Medvedev took issue with U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s characterization of Russia as the “No. 1 geopolitical foe.” He said the view “smelled of Hollywood stereotypes” and suggested that it was rooted in the Cold War.

But it wasn’t only Medvedev and his pro-Western supporters who became critical of the Republican’s views. Although President Vladimir Putin recently thanked Romney for his openness regarding the “No.1 foe” comment, he also indicated that it would be hard for the Kremlin to work with Romney as president, especially on sensitive security issues such as the missile defense system. During Putin’s interview with RT state television, he also called Obama an “honest man who really wants to change much for the better.” This comment was widely viewed as Putin’s most direct endorsement of Obama in the presidential race.

The above is not really a surprise.  The main surprise is that this has been made somewhat public.

Speaking of things being made public, last March Barack Obama thought he was making an off-camera remark to then Russian President Dmitri Medvedev when he (Barack Obama) said:

“This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

Immediately, Dmitri Medvedev responded with a promise to relay that information to his mentor, Vladimir Putin (who had just, again, been elected Russia’s new president).

Well, apparently Vladimir Putin liked that.  Russia has long wanted the USA to have less secure missile defensive systems.
