The New York Times: The Quiet Americans Behind the Scenes of the Tangled US-Russia Relations

I would like to bring to your attention a wonderful article from the New-York Times devoted to the American policy towards Russia and the people who make this policy.
It seems to me the quintessence of this article and US policy can serve the following passage:

...«We were so happy that democracy was spreading, and communism collapsed, - says Olga Oliker, director of the Russia and Eurasia Study Program at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies. -There were all these numerous countries who said: “Yes, please, take us to NATO, give us a weapon to defend against the Russians, they will always go, as always.” And we answered: "Well, the Russians do not go, but yes, let's join us, together we will be democratic countries."
 
“That's just the Russians took it as a sign that we are still against them. It was very difficult to replay,- she continues. -From that moment on, we did all sorts of things and said: “We do this not to harm you,” and the Russians still thought that all this was to their detriment.And we did it not because we wanted to harm them. We did it because we didn’t care if it hurt them or not. ”
