The Soviet Union, after WW II, was a ruthless totalitarian state which had taken advantage of its military position after the war, in which its armies had been sent far into Europe in order to fight the Third Reich, to take over all of eastern Europe and to install puppet regimes that were supported by the Soviet military. The USSR actually announced its intention to convert the entire world to communism (in a famous statement made by Nikita Kruschev at the UN, who said of the western world, "we will bury you!"). The Soviet Union was paranoid, dishonest, and generally untrustworthy.
