view of USA in Caspian Sea region

How do people in former USSR states like Azerbaijan (which is predominantly Muslim) feel about the USA? Most of the sites I have visited deal with natuaral resources in the region, and many are outdated. In addition, these sites don’t really have information about what the “common man” in Azerbaijan thinks about the USA and world events. I would like to hear from people in the area or from someone who has recently been there.
