Russia: Friend or foe?

America: "Moscow spies tipped Saddam on U.S. war plan"

Russia: No, we didn't.

Russia, like France, had "secured millions of dollars worth of trade and service contracts in Iraq, with the implied understanding that their political posture with regard to sanctions on Iraq would be pro-Iraqi."

However, "Russian intelligence officials repeatedly have denied having any links with Iraqi spy services."

Whom to believe?
