The northern vietnamese, ruled by Ho Chi Minh, shared the same ideolegy as the Soviets. These groups were both communist. So support was given to North Vietnamese troops by the Soviet Union. Also, because of the nuclear tension between USSR and USA, the support of the Soviets in Vietnam prvented a major intervention of American troops. Americans feared the Soviets would pose nuclear threat. The Soviets also dispatched a reported 3,000 troops to Vietnam.
The Soviet Union (USSR) supplied North Vietnam, and the US fought for South Vietnam.
Yes, but their efforts were primarily involved in the air defense of North Vietnam.

The Soviet Union and China were two significant allies of North Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The war lasted from 1955 to 1975.
The Cold War was a stand off between the United States and the Soviet Union, so to answer your original question, yes.
Sovient Union - the USSR and the Western Allies - Australia, U.S.A and Britain U.S., Soviet Union, Korea, China, Cuba, Vietnam, Germany.
After the Vietnam war the Soviet Union did not attack or overtly support the expansion of Communism through military means. No war stopped as such but Communist agression was forever checked. Stopping the Communist expansion was one of the USA's reasons to get involved in Vietnam and some argue that the war was successful due to this.
The Cold War between the Soviet Union and the Western powers started in 1945 at the end of World War II and lasted until the end of the Soviet Union in 1991. Australia's most direct involvement in this conflict occurred during the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
The Vietnam war is also called the Second Indochina War. The war was fought by between North Vietnam who were supported by China and Soviet Union and South Vietnam which was supported by the United States.
The former Soviet Union expended funds on military hardware with or without Vietnam. The ONLY difference was; the Vietnam ordnance was USED (consumed); after the Vietnam War, the Soviet ordnance (that was never used) had to be destroyed...as they were in the US.
The US did not want to "openly declare war" on Vietnam, because that would have meant an open war against communism and therefore the Soviet Union could have been automatically involved to defend one of its allies. The involvement of the USSR in open war against the US would have started World War 3.
North Vietnam (supported lightly by China and the Soviet Union) won the war against South Vietnam supported directly by the U.S. (America basically fought the war for South Vietnam).
Both the Soviet Union and China supplied armaments to North Vietnam.
NORTH VIETNAM supplied by Red China and the Union of Soviet Socialistic Republics against the US and allies.
The Soviet Union supported Vietnam because not only were they communist but they supported them because they were using the Vietnamese people to fight the United States. Which in other words it is called a proxy war.
Russia, then called the Soviet Union, supplied America's enemy with weapons. The Soviet Union (Russia) was a cold war enemy. Russia (Soviet Union) and America never officially fought each other. Russia (Soviet Union) and America were allies only during WWII.
The Soviet Union and The United States Of Canada.
If they hadn't been a communist country trying to take over another possibly. If the Soviet Union and/or Communist China were not involved, possibly.
