Best Answer

The Cold War pushed Russia and other neighboring countries such as Britain and USA to focus a lot of its research on military technology. Each country wanted to remain a step ahead of the other where surveillance and weapons superiority was concerned.

Russia is an Eastern Country and a Western Country; it covers EURASIA. Consequently it is often referred to as the West when spoken about in Asia, and referred to as the East when talked about in Europe or North America. For cold war purposes, the Soviet Union was the East (Orient) and the West (Occident) was the US and Free world nations. As far as the word "tension" is concerned; the definition of Cold War is Tension. It was a stand-off. There was no war.
