Then, thanks to the pragmatic policy of Washington, the world managed to move away from the abyss. But victory in the crisis remained for the USSR. The United States was forced to remove its missiles from Turkey and Italy. Only then did the American authorities realize that it would not be possible to fight with Moscow by military means.

According to Israeli expert Jacob Kedmi, the Americans have from 3 to 5 years to contain Russia's military power.
