True. The only mention should be that they are just a supportive ally of USSR and nothing else.
And I distinctly remember something in WL that said, "nobody knew who press the button first and it does not matter now" or similar. Basically, it was an "exchange of arms" and both the USA & USSR are equally at fault for causing a worldwide nuclear winter. So, no one to blame actually.
Thus, there really is no "demonizing" or "bashing" of any country. Just a very simplified, albeit very real, possibility of the 80s Cold War. There was every reason to push that BRB (big red button) but no one was insane enough to do it first in OUR reality.
P. S. Some of the biggest fans of Wasteland are Russian.
