Russia
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Russia in US History
 
2     In both World War I and World War II, Russia was our ally. Russia entered World War I in 1914, long before the United States did. It fought against Austria-Hungary to support another of its allies, Serbia. Russia also left that war before our country did. It was having problems within the borders of its own country, and the people of Russia no longer wanted to fight in a world war. So, in 1917, Russia met with Germany to write a peace treaty for their two countries before the rest of the war was over.
 
3     In World War II, Russia and the United States were again allies, but this situation did not last for long. As soon as the world war ended, Russia, which had become a Communist country, and the United States became enemies in a Cold War, a conflict fought with ideas and money rather than armies. This Cold War lasted for many years. Then, in the 1990's, it was over as quickly as it had begun.
 
4     Now, Russia is back to being just Russia, and it is no longer the enemy of the United States that it once was. To many students today, it is just another country mentioned in their history textbooks.
