Despite their lopsided record, the U.S. women’s soccer team continues to have an edge over their Russian counterparts. With eight goals in the second match against Russia, the U.S. side is still a class above Russia, which ranks 21st in the world. Here are some statistics to help you understand the difference between the two teams.
In the spring of 2011, the U.S. imposed sanctions on the Syrian government, urging it to step down. However, Russia stood its ground and continued to support the government against the rebels. In the wake of the Nice terror attack, the U.S. and its allies are now forced to work together and help bring an end to the war in Syria.
In the summer of 1989, Secretary of State James A. Baker met with Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze in Vienna. The two countries agreed to expand military information and cooperate more closely against terrorism. In addition, both sides agreed to resume bilateral arms talks. This has continued ever since.
The United States is preparing for the challenges that Russia may pose in the Middle East. However, it is unclear whether it has a steady strategy to manage Russia’s changes in foreign policy and development. However, the United States claims that it is prepared to defend its national interests if Russia challenges it.
