You can complete this with very little actual fighting.

I did this as the Americans (on Easiest difficulty) while going for the Espionage missions.

Skip combat each turn, and do the espionage missions, they are mostly very easy. There are a couple where you need to build up a force by bribing people. Be cautious, send your captured unit and the now visible spy away from the enemy and use your other spies to capture more.

Upgrade the NATO territories to level 3 as soon as you are able so they don't defect.

Once I was done with the 6 spy missions, I placed armies in China and Turkey and was able to get an overrun attack (no battle) against Central Asia. If they have an army you will have to fight it out. Then on your next turn you can take Moscow for the win. I used a mercenaries card I had from the Espionage missions, as well as Logistics to prevent attrition. I also used several sabotage cards to lower Moscow's level.

In the battle I just rushed Moscow and didn't even build a city of my own. Once it was assimilated I built 6 small towers, 2 each to the NE,SE,SW, and a fort to the NW. I razed (delete key) all the houses/apartments/offices and built a couple of sam sites. I also built a siege factory and a couple rocket artillery to fend off battleships. After that you mostly just need to wait out the ten minute timer.
