Can you Expand on that Shooting Russians point?
A Part of history I am unaware.
At the end of WWI the United States, Canada, the UK, and Japan embarked on what is commonly called The Siberian Expedition. Essentially, attempting to take sides in the Russian civil war. Most of this action was on or near the Trans-Siberian Railway, and associated seaports.

The US branch of the Bank of England”Federal Reserve” almost completely funded the Bolshivicks using the Red Cross as cover to distibute funds and supplies
The Allies, in a effort to keep the Russians fighting the Germans on the Eastern Front, began shipping supplies via the Trans-Siberian Railway, and when the Revolution began adversely impacting the delivery of supplies, the Allies sent ground troops to protect the logistics lines of communications. They stayed past the Armistice to allow for the evacuation of other Allied forces from the Eastern Front thru Siberia, to recover supplies sent to the Russian Army, and to prevent a power vacuum that might be exploited by the Communists or other powers.
Another pretty good book on the subject is The Ignorant Armies by E.M. Halliday
Some interesting history of which I was unaware. Always learning!
