Russia actually isn't all that powerful.  I've read that they make small strategic moves making them look stronger in a conventional military sense than they are.  They have a nuclear arsenal that no one can match though.

They're doing this all because they're broke.  That's what it all comes down to.

The USA can match their nuclear arsenal in terms of mutually assured destruction. 

Even though they are broke they are wielding power unchecked.  I hate to invoke the Darwin rule but pre war Germany was also broke.

Russia does only have one rickety old carrier which the USA can make quick work of.
