The Soviets did more dying, because they did more fighting. The war on the Eastern Front was the War.
Look at battles, materiel, manpower, casualties. There is no comparison. The Soviets even defeated a million Japanese troops while they were at it.
You're completely out of your depth in this conversation. You don't understand the terms you are using; you have no facts.
Read this book

The Soviets won World War II in Europe--and, really, the Nazis won the Cold War for the U.S. (We're talking over 20 million Soviet dead in that war).
The big irony here is that the American propaganda put into force to win the already-won Cold War is precisely the thing that has left you so clueless about what happened in WW2.
