Not canon, but it would be a fun spinoff and would be a fun project.
However, since the movie is cold war era. I would suspect that in some way, the Soviet Union exists, and to have a spin off of a Soviet variant similar to USCM would just be awesome and unique.
From my recollection, it was heavily alluded to in the old Colonial Marines tech manual that Russia had been defeated and annexed by China.
Most of the engagements the USCM fought were against Chinese soldiers, as china was the only other superpower with the ability to project on a galactic scale.
Its still an awesome idea though.
