Here is a scripture where Russia and the USA are not mentioned by name but more then likely are included.
Revelation. 16:18-19:
And there were voices, and thunders and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
And the great city (Jerusalem) was divided into three parts, and the CITIES OF THE NATIONS FELL:

Three Defeats of Russia

There will be three future defeats of Russia in the fulfillment of prophecy:

1. Russia will have to be defeated in the formation of the ten kingdoms, for she must lose her hold on Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and other parts of the old Roman Empire which she now controls. Russia, herself never was a part of the old Roman Empire and cannot be one of the ten kingdoms which must be formed therein to fulfill prophecy, but she has control over some who will be a part of that territory, Dan. 2:39-45; 7:7, 8, 19-24; Rev. 13:1; 17:9-17. It being inconceivable that Russia would let these holdings go, without a war, it can be expected that a war will break out in Europe, Asia, and Africa which will result in defeat to Russia and the formation of these ten kingdoms.

2. Russia will again be defeated when the Antichrist arises out of one of the ten kingdoms (after a short space as independent kingdoms), when he overthrows three of the ten kingdoms in a period of three and one-half years, causing the other six to submit to him without further struggle, Dan. 7:8, 19-24; Rev. 17:8-17. A war will then break out between the ten kingdoms under Antichrist and Germany, Russia, and the other countries in the north and east of the ten kingdoms which will last about three and one-half years, Dan. 11:44. In this war, Russia and her allies being defeated, the Antichrist will then become the ruler of Russia also. He will proceed to lead his ten kingdoms, together with the newly conquered countries of the north and east, along with other nations who, though not yet conquered will co-operate with him through the ministry of the three unclean spirits—and they will all go as a united force against the Jews in an effort to exterminate them, Ezek. 38-39; Zech. 14. With half of Jerusalem taken and the Jews almost destroyed, Christ and the armies of heaven will suddenly appear in the clouds of heaven to defeat the armies of the earth in one day's battle and then set up a kingdom in the world forever, Zech. 14; Mt. 24:27-31; 25:31-46; 2 Thess. 1:7-10; 2:8-12; Jude 14; Rev. 19:11-21; 20:1-7.

Thus Antichrist will become the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal and the Gog of Ezek. 38-39 by conquest, not because he will come from Russia. This is the war that some scholars claim will take place in Palestine before the Battle of Armageddon, but in this they are mistaken because the ten kingdoms must first be formed and be conquered by the Antichrist from Syria before the war with Russia takes place. This war will not be fought in Palestine, but in the countries to the north and east of the ten kingdoms (Dan. 11:44), and then will come the invasion of Palestine under Antichrist, at the very close of the age, as shown in all the above scriptures.

3. Russia will be defeated at last by Jesus Christ and the armies of heaven, and Judah, at Jerusalem, Zech. 14:14; Ezek. 38-39; Rev. 19:11-21. At that time Russia will be under Antichrist; she will not be the leader of the nations at Armageddon. This war will be fought in Palestine, not in the countries north and east of the ten kingdoms as the war in point 2 above, Ezek. 38-39; Zech. 14. Thus, Russia will never fulfill many of the predictions some of the scholars claim she will. Actually, Antichrist from Syria will fulfill these many scriptures they refer to, and Russia will merely be one of many allies of Antichrist after he conquers her as in the second war, above.

The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note
