As the Soviet propaganda booklet from Novosti Presss Agency asks - Whence the threat to Peace? Is it really Russia?  US and NATO military expenditure far outstrips that of Russia, so to claim that the greatest threat to world peace in the world is Russia,  does not seem to stack up.  If you ask me, I would say it is either the reckless meddling of the US in the middle-east and Ukraine, or Saudi Arabia's military activities in Yemen, or both.  But what do I know - I'm just a useful idiot.
