The governments in the past were very different, America founded on religious freedoms and soviet union, communist and not wanting any religion. Just two very different systems. Relations have improved, just are some arguments lately over weapons being placed in former soviet countries. The actual Russian and American people don't hate each other, and the countries were allies against the Axis in ww2.

Both revolutions were fought against monarchs that were tied to state religions. The disgusting relationship between the Orthodox Church and the Czar was the root of Soviets distrust and persecution of any politically active religion. Take a look at what the Russian Orthodox Church is pulling now. If you can't see the third Russian Revolution coming in another 10-20 years, you're not paying attention. There's religion, and then there's religions that insert themselves into government.... Wait! We have that with the Republicans!!! See, the countries have more in common! By the grace of God, it's a miracle!

I think Islamic religion tries to control government much more than the left or right here. They argue a lot here but Islamic countries have religion reaching into everything from lending laws to diet.

Not all of Islam is like that, any more than is everyone who calls themselves Christian, a tyrant..

The communist party supports the Democrats. Go to CPUSA.com and read all about it. Read their platform too and see how it resembles the Democrat platform.

We were conditioned to during 40 years of cold war. They were conditioned to hate us. A little of that may continue to this day but I honestly don't see it. There's a large population of Russian immigrants that have moved to my area and I really see or hear nothing but positive for the most part.

The cold war never ended. Spying continued and continues today. We do not hate the Russian people. We have to protect State secrets and promote human rights. We never hated the Russian people, just the leaders. We live in a very, very dangerous world.

Republicans hate communists because they can't make huge profits under their system. Democrats hate communists because they don't like the competition.
Kidding aside, we have had a love-hate relationship with Russia for many years, based on cold-war competition.

Just like Americans don't hate the people of Iran we don't hate the people in Russia. We are still threatened by the Russians leaders as currently as last week. They said they will bomb any missile bases we put up in Europe. They also supply arms to our enemies. Relations have always been a little tense with them even when we do get along like with the space station. As Reagan said "trust but verify".

Hate would be a word used during the cold war. Today both countries have mellowed due to many factors. I'd describe them as former boxers who respect each other but don't exactly love each other yet.

History taught us that the most competitor of USA is America. That is in science, exploration, invention, war fares and even governance. More so the hate between these countries evolved through culture, tradition and competition. Even the laws that govern each countries are exact opposites though it was for the betterment of its people... source: http://www.ledgerlaw.com

And, I'm told I'm very white. From reading some of the threads here, I get the distinct impression that my whiteness precludes me from liking Russians. Oops. I reckon I just don't know my place in this world...

I am the son Latvian immigrants who were refugees to the USA, as a result of World War II, and, was raised to hate Russians for their occupation of Latvia. This extended to any American who's last name ended with the wrong combination of letters. However, in the last 3 years, due to social media and other sources, I have made friends with many Russians. We ask your question only add the word "how"... Bottom line is my first sentence. The citizens of both countries were lied to by our governments and, in my case my parents, about the others motivations of county compared to those of its people. Thank God for the net! The world is a smaller place.

You started the question with a false assumption...American people don't hate Russian people (well, some do, but that's their personal issue)....Russia has produced some great people, and those great people fled to other counties to avoid being killed, or sent to the Gulag...we don't hate Russians.

Now, Communists and Socialists? That's another story!

I noticed that when I don't tell people I am Russian, they treat me as they would any other American. However, should I tell them I am Russian, they, all of a sudden, start hearing a strong accent, and tell me that I look Russian, and it eventually turns into full-blown harassment, where I can't even talk to these people about anything else, but Russia, Cold war, things I don't even know anything about. I've had too many instances like these. This is such a shame. Even many foreigners from other countries beg me not to present myself as Russian anymore... I swear, their compulsion to do something like this seems next to supernatural.

Plus, in the US, they always warn you that if somebody starts harassing you, you'll be the one to blame, and eventually ousted. No one usually sides with you because it's easier to side with the majority. On top of all, if you complain, they'll label you "stink". That's why people prefer to commit suicide as a result of harassment, then actually take action.
