Barack Obama tonight:

[C]ountries like Russia and China that are, I think Senator McCain would agree, not democracies, but have extensive trade with Iran but potentially have an interest in making sure Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapon. (emphasis added).

From a news account today:

Putin made the nuclear offer after Russia this week delayed talks with the United States and other powers on fears Iran is developing nuclear weapons, concerns critics say have been exacerbated by civilian nuclear technology provided by Moscow.  (emphasis added).

If Russia has an interest in preventing Iran from having nukes, it's obviously news . . . to Russia.
