Problem in ping response for google.com while using openvpn

Post by wineglass » Fri Jul 31, 2015 4:47 am

I have a openvpn account of location Russia,Moscow City while I tried to ping google it gave me following replies :
ping www.google.com
PING www.google.com (195.94.233.26) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from mail.td.rusalco.com (195.94.233.26): icmp_req=1 ttl=59 time=204 ms
64 bytes from mail.td.rusalco.com (195.94.233.26): icmp_req=2 ttl=59 time=208 ms
64 bytes from mail.td.rusalco.com (195.94.233.26): icmp_req=3 ttl=59 time=204 ms

and mail.td.rusalco.com has no link with google.com so why am I getting this.

And even I used traceroute for this ip it still gave me this domain only instead of google.com
The ip of rusalco.com on who.is is not even as same as this ip.
The main question arisess why the ping shows this cname mapped to this above mentioned ip if it has nothing to do with google.com

I even tried using dig command on google.com which gave me following results:
dig www.google.com

; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> www.google.com
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 36729

www.google.com. 18 IN A 195.94.233.57
www.google.com. 18 IN A 195.94.233.26
www.google.com. 18 IN A 195.94.233.16

and also while pinging again multiple times it sometimes also gives me with other cnames mapped with the above mentioned ip pool.

Help me clarifying that is this relevant usual reply from ping command or somebody is sniffing my data.
