Why is the American right suddenly pro-Russia?

I've always grown up that the knowledge the Russian Federation, particularly, its predecessor, the Soviet Union was a sworn enemy to the United States. Even after the Cold War ended, US policy and posture toward Russia remained hostile; likewise, Moscow has not made it a point to be best friends with the United States either. Why then are so many on the American right praising Russia and President Putin on Syria, and his (blatantly intolerant) domestic policies? Isn't this type of behavior undermining US power and influence in the world? Russia will take a victory over Syria, and President Putin made an "address" to the American people -- it seems like they're the one's in control. So why is the American right (the self-proclaimed "real Americans") in a new found love affair with Putin; Russia isn't any less socialist today than at the beginning of the new federation. I'm an American liberal, by the way.
