The Soviets were already preparing for the postwar faceoff with the USA (and vice versa). Surely that's not news to you? Igor Gouzenko ring a bell?

In the movies, it makes much more sense for it to be HYDRA, in terms of the location of the accident, that they've already incorporated HYDRA/Zola experiments into Winter Soldier's origin, and, judging from the first movie, they're not anxious to make extensive use of actual foreign countries as villains.
