I believe the card text states:
Unless UN Intervention is played as an Event on the US players’s next round, the USSR receives 3 VP prior to any US VP award.
What this means is, that if on the next US action round, the US does not play UN Intervention as an Event, then the USSR gets 3 VP, and these VP come before the US gets any VP from playing Events or scoring cards. So the USSR could win an automatic victory by reaching 20 VP even if the card played by the US player on his next action round awards the US enough VPs to drop the USSR VPs below 20.
The US does not need to be scoring VPs during the action round to trigger the USSR award. The text is just mean to clarify the above situation.
complete and correct explanation.
