In the James Bond film Goldeneye Ourumov is "top of the list" of potential traitors when the Goldeneye is stolen however M's analysts rule him out because

He sees himself as the next iron man of Russia, which is why our analysts say he doesn't fit the profile of a traitor.

It turns out however that Ourumov is indeed a traitor and is colluding with

Alec Trevelyan

Given it's so unlikely that Ourumov turn traitor what was he offered to betray his country?

As far as we know...(at least initially)

For the money

Certainly Ourumov's motivations are vague at best and there is little clue in the movie itself.

The only comment in this direction is when Trevelyan says to him when questioned about Trevelyan's origins....

"What's true is that in 48 hours, you and I will have more money than God"

Whether Ourumov had deeper plans than that is not covered.

As for the comment from M...

He sees himself as the next iron man of Russia, which is why our analysts say he doesn't fit the profile of a traitor.

Bond's comment seems appropriate...

Are these the same analysts who said that GoldenEye couldn't exist?

Who said the helicopter posed no threat and wasn't worth following?

Basically, M's analysts were just plain wrong!
