Yes, the Russian people were historically the first to be oppressed by legalized abortion, and the first to be oppressed by the legalization of one-day divorce.
But do you seriously think those were the only things Sister Lucy was talking about when she said "Yes, the United States also."
Imprisoning, torturing and killing Christians? Deliberate mass starvation?
I was also thinking of another of Mary's approved apparations when she warned us of Russia's secret armies.
"If My requests are not granted, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world raising up wars and persecutions against the Church,
the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated." -Our Lady of Fatima, 1917
Father Paul Kramer said in 2004: Unanimously, in all the prophecies of the saints down through the ages, and in the most secure and certain apparitions of Our Lady, it is revealed that there is going to be a tremendous great World War. It will break out suddenly, from East to West...The Russians already have an army of Special Forces and Arab terrorists that they have trained, along with the Communist Red Chinese. They have a vast army, secret armies, who are waiting for the day when the signal is given...And they will attack Europe. In the morning it will appear that the world is at peace. By the evening, the entire world will be plunged into war. (Kramer P. The Imminent Chastisement for Not Fulfilling Our Lady’s Request.

According to the beatified Sister Elena Aiello, a mystic and stigmatic, was told by Our Blessed Mother:
“The hour of the justice of God is close, and will be terrible!” “Tremendous scourges are impending over the world, and various nations are struck by epidemics, famines, great earthquakes, terrific hurricanes, with overflowing rivers and seas, which bring ruin and death.” “If the people do not recognize in these scourges (of nature) the warnings of Divine Mercy, and do not return to God with truly Christian living, ANOTHER TERRIBLE WAR WILL COME FROM THE EAST TO THE WEST. RUSSIA WITH HER SECRET ARMIES WILL BATTLE AMERICA; WILL OVERRUN EUROPE. The river Rhine will be overflowing with corpses and blood. Italy, also, will be harassed by a great revolution, and the Pope will suffer terribly.” “Spread the devotion to my Immaculate Heart, in order that many souls maybe conquered by my love and that many sinners may return to my Maternal Heart. Do not fear, for I will accompany with my maternal protection my faithful ones, and all those who accept my urgent warnings, and they — especially by the recitations of my Rosary — will be saved.” “Satan goes furiously through this disordered world, and soon will show all his might. But, because of my Immaculate Heart, the triumph of Light will not delay in its triumph over the power of darkness, and the world, finally, will have tranquility and peace.” - given on August 22, 1960
