The thing is, the US has a much better military than Russia does, for example; the military expenditure (how much $ spent on the military in a given year) of the US is about 700 billion and Russia is about 70 billion. So one could say the US has them beat in terms of military value 10:1. However Russia itself is enormous, and in a full-scale invasion of Russia, it's fair to think that Russia would have a chance (not really a good one). However, everyone who knows anything knows invading the US is pretty much impossible. The US Coast Guard is larger than the entire Royal Navy, and to invade America you would have to first be able to land troops on US soil. Good luck getting troops past the Coast Guard when you're getting blown out of the sky/water 2000 miles away from the coast. So since I'm talking about invasions, getting troops in Russia is fairly easy, since Russia is so big, they can't realistically stop anybody from getting in.
Now before you start saying all they would have to do is nuke the US and then invade it while it's hurt. Let me tell you something, one does not simply nuke the US. So please don't say anything about nuking the US because we all know that's suicide.
The only realistic approach to invading the US is in the event of a solar flare over North America but even then we know Washington D.C. is supposedly shielded from EMP and the sort.
Russia nowadays is more focused on NK, not the US. However Russia has been caught numerous times in the last couple years doing all kinds of naughty shit around US turf.
In July 2012, two Tu-95 Bears were intercepted by NORAD fighters in the air defense zone off the U.S. coast of Alaska, where they may have been practicing the targeting of Fort Greely and Vandenberg Air Force Base. Later in August 2012, it was revealed that an Akula class submarine had conducted a patrol within the Gulf of Mexico without being detected, raising alarms of the U.S. Navy's anti-submarine warfare capabilities.
On 12 February 2013, just hours before the 2013 State of the Union Address, two Russian Tu-95 Bear strategic bombers equipped with nuclear-tipped cruise missiles circled the United States territory of Guam. Air Force F-15 jets based on Andersen Air Force Base were scrambled to intercept the aircraft. The Russian aircraft reportedly were intercepted and left the area in a northbound direction.
In all honesty, China would stand a much better chance than Russia could and saying anything about NK being able to defeat the US automatically qualifies you for going full retard.
