It's supposed to be going on in like the original in the 60s or in the next decades?

"Earth will stand! MARS WILL FALL!"

Nicely done, but why did the Soviet soldiers have American weapons? That's M16 that Red Army soldier (I presume) is holding.

the soldiers are wearing US style uniforms and they are part of the 'earth allaince', so traditional delineationms don't really apply ;)

Because the Martians currently have it - note the building behind the kremlin

It appears that the aliens have conquered Earth and established a base on the Red Square. The human resistance is fighting back and is trying to recapture the area taken by the invaders. I think it's pretty clear what picture he was trying to capture.
