It is well known fact that US-help was very important for saving USSR from defeat. However, contemporary "Russian patriots" not only deny the role of USA in WW2 but propagate calumny. This is found in all Russian forums more or less touching WW2. An example of this calumny (if you read Russian, you may find the original text here Ñàìèçäàò: Ñòàëèí - Êóòóçîâ. 22 èþíÿ., commentary N. 89): "Thus, it is question who was better helped by USA in WW2 - USSR or Hitlerian Germany". In my opinion, American underestimate the scale of xenophoby and anti-americanism in Russia.
