One  example of Soviet science is Kirlean photography.  If you want 
to use  politics and humanitarian behavior as a measure of science, 
you'll have to  do some long hard looking at the U.S.  Interment of 
the Japanese  during World War II is a good place to start with 
American  humanitarianism.  The documentation of that one relatively 
small  instance is good enough to make good discussion.  The 
testimony of  Japanese-American school children rounded up at 
gunpoint is on the  books.

So what?
Kirilian photography was one of the great frauds of the 1970s.  You  can get 
the same results from wet spaghetti as you can from a human hand.
As far as behavior goes, that has nothing to do with science.  And at  least 
we did not gas the Japanese, nor starve them, nor freeze them to  death.  The 
attempt at a comparison with the soviets is too absurd to take  seriously.
Countries kill people.  That is what they do best and to bother with  such 
examples is a waste of time.  What the hell does the interment of  Japanese 
Americans in WW2 have to do with the quality of research?
