The Russian government, on orders of President Vladimir Putin, has cooperated with the United States in Operation Enduring Freedom. Measures include: issuing statements of support for U.S. policy; encouraging (or, at least, not discouraging) the nations of Central Asia to provide military bases for U.S. operations; and according to newspaper reports, sharing intelligence on Afghanistan with the United States and providing weapons to the Northern Alliance. Many Western observers have described President Putin's decision to side with the United States in the 'war on terrorism' as a radical departure from the established course of Russia's national security policy. This observation, however, is a bit superficial.
