Again, read a little history. In 1917 Russia was a pre-industrial despotism. By 1958 it put the first artificial earth satellite into orbit. That’s a hell of a lot of development in just 40 years. 29 million Russians were killed fighting Nazis in WWII. 80 times more than US killed. The first defeat ever suffered by the Nazi Wehrmacht in WWII was at Stalingrad. The US gave weapons for the war to both the UK and USSR.
