Why would Russians want to affect the outcome of an American election?

They want whoever they want to win

To control the USA obviously. And to manipulate its foreign policy in their favour.

Weakening America strengthens Russia by default. This is a given. I'm not going to extrapolate on unknown/unsecured details w/ opinion if that's what you want. There are plenty of postulations out there you have just as much access to.

They want someone sympathetic to Russia.

All of these attempts are tailored to whatever happens to be best for Russia - also to demean our diplomatic position in the world, as most Russians would like to be able to enjoy the freedoms we have in North America, something Putin doesn't adhere to. Russian views of the United States are at a low point; Putin believes the U.S. plays its own nefarious games in Russian politics; and Moscow would like to undermine U.S. international credibility by highlighting the deficiencies in American party politics. It all concerns stratagems; to achieve all that will benefit Russia, and weaken the USA as well as other countries who oppose their kind of realm.

Democrats need the Russian Business to launder money.
To sell scarce resources.
Trump wants a level playing field for business in the civil markets.
That is why the Russians were so eager to sell information the Clintons.

In case you're unfamiliar with history.... Western leaders prevented Russia from getting its long-coveted "warm water" sea port since the time of Catherine the Great...because they all knew that allowing them to do so would make Russia a dominant player in the futures of Europe, Africa and the Middle East....
In case you're unfamiliar with recent history.... Putin got that sea port in Syria...a cold war refueling depot that is now being converted into a base that will house a nuclear fleet and over 40,000 troops... and he got it by skipping merrily over Obama's "red line" ...
Considering the massive gains they made while Biden was VP, why would they NOT want him in office as the "leading man?"
cause they want whoever they want to win
