When did the US invade Russia?
In September 1918 the US sent a small contingent of about 5,000 troops to Archangel and about 8,000 to Vladivostok. This was part of an allied (British, French and US) involvement in the Russian revolution. The purpose was to secure allied supplies, to rescue the Czech Legion and to bring Russia back into World War I against Germany, by assisting in the defeat of the Bolsheviks.

At the end of 1940 Hitler was anxious to end the war. It had been a great strain on the nation and economy and seemed to be winding down. He was applying his mind to the post …war period and was in negotiations with the Italian, French and Japanese to find a kind of equilibrium for the New Order. He also wanted an understanding with the Soviets. He invited the Russia Foreign Minister, Molotov, to Berlin to work out an understanding and told him that there didn't have to be a conflict of interest between Germany and the Soviet Union as long as each country respected the other's sphere of influence, which he mapped out. He stated that Soviet-German cooperation had been mutually beneficial and Molotov agreed. Hitler told Molotov that it would take Germany 100 years to fully utilize the new teritories she had acquired as a result of the war and that she would look to her old colonies in Africa for Lebensraum or new lands to colonize. :) However, in the course of his discussions with Molotov, Hitler perceived the Soviets to be hostile, accusatory and making difficulties. There was an emnity there from the Soviet side that could not be overcome and Hitler began to suspect the Soviets might be planning an attack on Germany. He ordered the planning for Operation Barbarossa (the attack on the Soviet Union) as a contingency if the political process broke down. Many believe that Hitler wanted to attack the Soviets simply to control more territory and to destroy Communism, perhaps. However I believe the strike was one of preemption. Certainly Germany didn't need any more new territories and the country was war-weary. Hitler himself, though he was an anti-communist, didn't really care all that much about the goings-on outside of Germany and what he considered the German sphere of influence. He heart was really for Germany and some of the territories of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire for which he had a sentimental attachment, having been born into that great and cosmopolitan empire. Certainly the campaigns in Norway, Greece and Africa were for preemption - to deny England areas of operation. The sad truth for Germany and the world is that the two alpha dogs of Europe, the Nazi Regime and the Soviet Union were destined to have it out. Despite the fact that the war with England was still unresolved, Hitler decided to strike first. Comment The above is one-sided and quite exceptionally ill-informed. For example, what is all that talk about "the old Austro-Hungarian Empire for which he had a sentimental attachment, having been born into that great and cosmopolitan empire"? Hitler simply loathed the old Austro-Hungarian Empire and cosmopolitanism. (He got rid of his Austrian citizenship in 1927, despite the fact by doing so he made himself a stateless person). The also overlooks the fact that those negotiations were only one of a number of possibilities that the Nazi regime explored - and didn't take seriously. The author of the above has forgotten that one of the main grievances of the German nationalists, including the Nazis, in the interwar period was the fact that the fruits of Germany's victory over Russia had as it were been snatched away by events on Western Front. The Nazis were extremely hostile to Communism. Hitler's great ambition was the eradication of Communism. In fact, one of the main reasons for the establishment of the Nazi party and its immediate predecessor was the complete destruction of what the Nazis called 'Jewish Bolshevism'. Boundless expansion in Eastern Europe (not in Africa) had been the key goal of German nationalism since 1917-18 or even 1914 ... To portray the war against the Soviet Union as the result of personal Hitlerian touchiness is downright laughable. Germany intended to rule the world. What better way than to rule a land that was as expansive, and had the people and resources Russia had?
World War 1 Germany invaded Russia in 1917 after Russia backed out of the war. World War 2 Germany invaded Russia during the Second World War on June 22, 1941 Operation Bar…barossa
He wanted to force Russia to comply with the economic boycott against the UK called the Continental System.
While named after the President that wrote the 1823 message to Congress, the Monroe Doctrine was the brain child of Secretary of State, John Quincy Adams. Basically the …Doctrine warned that the United States was no longer to be considered an area open to European influence or colonization. The US promised not to interfere in the affairs of Europe and Europe would respect that the Western Hemisphere was closed to colonization by any power. Two developments convinced Adams that such a Doctrine was necessary. First, the expanded Russian exploration and fur trapping south of Alaska, which had been Russian since 1741. The Russians built Fort Ross close to Spanish San Francisco and the Czar in 1821 ordered foreign ships to stay 100 miles clear of Russian American shores. It appeared that Russia might want territory that the US wanted to colonize. The second, yet more important problem Adams saw, was the chance that Austria and France would send troops to the Western Hemisphere to help Spain regain her lost colonies in South America.
Poland invaded Russia in 16th century. the Poles seized Moscow/Kremlin for two years 1610-1612. Polish prince - Wladyslaw became a russian tsar and his face was put on rus…sian money. The two most famous, or if you prefer, infamous are Napoleon (1812) & Hitler(!941). Ooops! what a mistake. Also Ghengis Khan, coming from the other direction.(1200 or so) Charles XII of Sweden also invaded, fairly famously. His army met the same fate as Napoleon's and Hitler's.
One of the reasons Russia invaded Chechnya in 1994 was because Russia wanted control of the vast reserves of oil there as well as the available pipelines. Russia also want…ed to discourage other republics from seceding from the Russian Federation the way Chechnya did.
Napoleon invaded Russia in order to further complete his mastery of Europe. As he had virtually defeated all other nation states in Europe
Yes in WWII Germany invaded Russia and nearly conquered Russia, but when Americans entered the war the Western front now had a new enemy for the Germans. The German War Machin…e was the best military power during both World Wars but especially in WWII. Some Estimate that nearly 20 million Russian civilians and soldiers were killed by German war efforts meaning that 1 in 4 Russians were killed or injured during the war. The Germans took control of Europe and killed about 28% of Poland population. The war was so massive and the lost of life was staggering. The entire world was forced to step up and stop Germany before they had control of Europe and other places. Germany proved to be one of the most powerful and feared nations in history with their Military dominance.
1968 - Soviet and Warsaw Pact troops invaded Czechoslovakia to stem a trend towards liberalization. Czechoslovakia was at the time a communist state but under some doctr…ine another communist state had the right to intervene if they deemed it was not following communist policies.
Yes, I dont know specifics but they were going to invade from cuba and land in Texas and Louisiana. A great point to invade, Texas being the most well armed state.

you don't. Russia is not only the biggest country in the world, it is also home to the brutal Spetsnazs. So unless you wan't to be shot by a Ballistic Knife, blown up by a Sai…ga Shotgun, or be brutally killed by a AK74, I probably wouldn't recommend it. If you want to know more about the spetsnazs search Deadliest Warrior Bios. yeah he's right. napolean, and Hitler were wiped out in russia. they also have the best tanks (t-90).

No,Russia never invaded,but France has once invaded Russia...that's for sure! Actually, Russia did invade France, but not as the aggressor country, the way Napoleon did to Ru…ssia. In 1814, after Napoleon invaded Russia then retreated back to France, Tsar Alexander I and the Russian Army (along with the Prussian and Austro-Hungarian armies) followed the retreating Napoleon all the way back to France. The Russian army entered France and defeated Napoleon at last. On March 31, 1814, Tsar Alexander I rode into Paris.
Historically it is called the 'Allied Intervention'. After Russian signed a peace treaty (Brest-Litovsk, March 3,1918) with Germany, removing Russia from the war, the allies …knowing that Germany could now remove it's divisions from the Eastern Front in Russia to France, make a major attack on Paris and win the war. Faced with this event, the British and French governments decided upon an Allied military intervention in Russia. They had three objectives:Prevent the German or Bolshevik capture of Allied material stockpiles in Arkhangelsk.Mount an attack rescuing the Czechoslovak Legion stranded on the Trans-Siberian Railroad.Resurrect the Eastern Front by defeating the Bolshevik army with help from the Czechoslovak Legion and an expanded anti-Bolshevik force of local citizens --- and, in the process, stop the spread of communism and the Bolshevik cause in Russia.Note: The United States and Japan was to secure the Trans-Siberian railroad in Siberia. About 8,000 American soldiers were in the intervention at Vladivostok and about 5,000 at Archangel. The American soldiers stayed in Siberia until 1920, long after the treaty had been signed.
Russia wanted land in Europe, and an access to sea. It wanted to increase infuence in eastern Europe and the Balkans at the expense of Austria-Hungary. Austria-Hungary's goal …was to maintain its position in eastern Europe at the expense of Russia. The 'powder keg' was the Balkans. So, Austria-Hungary sided with Germany to protect themselves from Russia (Dual Alliance, later with Italy forming the Triple Alliance in 1879); Russia sided with France and Britain to protect herself against Germany and Austria-Hungary (Triple Entente, 1907). When the First world War started with the Austrian attack on Serbia (28 July, 1914), Russia made preparations according to her promise to Serbia (in case of an Austrian attack on Serbia Russia would prepare her army to help Serbia). All the opposing countries declared war on each other. On 5th August 1914, Austria declared war on Russia, consequently, a week later Britain and France declared war on Austria. (Note, that Hungary did not have a separate ministry of foreign affairs, or a separate army at the time. Hungary was involved in a war which was fought for the Austrian imperial prestige and greed. The price was great: after the first World War, in the Treaty of Versailles, Hungary became independent at last, but lost two third of its original territory - that's why it sided with Germany in the Second Wrld War.)
