Data on Soviet losses during the Great Patriotic War

One of the topics that is often discussed in relation to stories World War II - this is the theme of the losses of the USSR, specifically losses in the army and navy. The numbers differ, and often at times. In some sources, data on losses exceeds the data from other sources by millions. Therefore, the question with accurate data about what kind of losses our country suffered during the war years, in fact, still remains open.


Candidate of Historical Sciences Alexei Isaev talks about the losses of the Red Army.

One of the difficulties that the historian speaks about is that the documents of the units and formations that ended up in the German "cauldrons" at the initial stage of the war turned out to be lost. For this reason, it was almost impossible to reliably establish how many soldiers and officers were captured, and how many died during the fighting. The second problem - for many years, data on the losses of the Red Army were under the heading "secret."

When the data began to be declassified, information appeared about the irretrievable losses of the USSR Armed Forces on the fronts of the Great Patriotic War, in Nazi captivity, about those who died from wounds in hospitals. This is about 8,6 million people. But these data appeared back in the days of the existence of the USSR, but after its collapse, unaccounted for victims began to be revealed.

      The price of the victory of the USSR over fascist Germany and its satellites:
      World War II claimed about 27 million lives of citizens of the USSR.
      Among the victims of the war:
      11 troops
      13 are the civilian population of the country.
      From the civilian population:
      intentionally exterminated by the occupiers - 7,4 million
      died at work in Germany - 2,2 million
      died out from starvation in the occupation - 4,1 million
      About a million people cannot be fully assigned to any category of victims of the USSR in the war (for example, deserters, traitors and volunteers, former Soviet citizens who fought on the side of Germany).
      Of the total number of the destroyed population, about 30-35% are women, including 10-15% of "reproductive age". As a result, the indirect losses for this indicator of two maternal generations can be estimated at no less than 15-20 million.
      Thus, the losses from the war of 1941-1945. in general, they can be estimated at least 40-45 million people ...
      General (irretrievable and sanitary) losses of the Red Army and Navy for the entire war with Germany 1941-1945. make up:
      29 592 749 people.
      Including:
      5 people were killed and died during the evacuation stage,
      died from wounds in hospitals - 1 people.
      Non-combat irretrievable losses amounted to 540 580 people.
      Missing, captured and unaccounted for losses - 4 people.
      Total irretrievable losses of the army (killed, missing, captured and died from wounds in hospitals) amounted to -11 people.
      Sanitary losses amounted to - 18 319 723 recorded wounds. Military doctors put into operation more than 10 million people, of whom not less than a third with repeated injuries. The total number of wounded, shell-shocked, and burned soldiers and officers over the four years of the war amounted to 15 million ...
      More than 2 600 000 people became completely disabled.
      The average monthly losses of troops and fleets amounted to about 10,5% of the size of the army (more than 20,5 thousand people a day, including more than 8 thousand killed) ...

      Here are more or less accurate figures, but you are right until the last dead we will not know. And these are scary numbers.

      The farther from the war, the greater the losses. In 20-50 years, it turns out that, due to the refinement of the data, not a single man remained in the USSR. In order to continue to fight, women underwent surgery by sewing eggs and selecting a revolver. Only one thing is doubtful, where will they get so many eggs? Will the Lend-Lease Provide for the States?

    I am surprised at the attitude in the world about those who died in WWII.
    According to known data, 6 million Jews were killed.
    This is official.
    In the USSR, 26-27 million died, if we take away the dead soldiers (8-9), about 18 million civilians died. This is 3 times more than Jews.

        Firstly, Soviet fighters who died on the territory of the BSSR were also included in the number of dead residents of Belarus (in 1941 they were recorded as permanently residing in the republic) and prisoners of war who died in camps on the territory of the BSSR. In addition, from 800 thousand to a million dead in Belarus were Jews.

      Israel pursues state policy, with the construction of Holocaust museums in most significant countries of the world, local Jewish communities monitor educational programs of the states of residence, etc.
      At this time, the Russian Foreign Ministry is conducting witty pickets with the Americans and Ukrainians at the UN.
      Russian communities in any country in the world assimilate very quickly - did you know, for example, that John Bon Jovi is Russian by birth? They do not care about the losses suffered by the USSR during the war, as well as to Russia. Therefore, they will know about the Holocaust in 300 years.

          According to the Main Trophy Directorate, published in the 1990s by Russian researchers Mikhail Semiryaga and Boris Knyshevsky, about 400 thousand rail cars were removed from the USSR from Germany, including 72 thousand cars of building materials, 2885 plants, 96 power plants, 340 thousand machine tools, 200 thousand electric motors, 1 million 335 thousand livestock, 2,3 million tons of grain, one million tons of potatoes and vegetables, half a million tons of fat and sugar, 20 million liters of alcohol, 16 tons of tobacco. Telescopes from the Humboldt University Astronomical Observatory, Berlin subway cars and cruise liners were brought to the USSR. In particular, in 1950, the Compressor Plant built in Krasnodar was equipped with confiscated technological, energy, and lifting equipment from Germany.

          Further, 427 million euros were paid to Russian citizens hijacked by forced labor during the period from 2000 to 2007.
          About German reparations to Jews - only in Germany Jews were deprived of money, property and other valuables for billions, also happened throughout occupied Europe - so they pay high. Their happiness is that the French and Austrian Rothschilds did not show them money for the "loss of income from 1938 to 2020."

      Because only Jews and Gypsies were killed purposefully and deliberately on a national basis. Only to exterminate the Jews were special camps built. And by the way, out of 27 million Soviet citizens who died and died of wounds, starvation, and illness (both at the front, in captivity, and in the rear), at least three million were Jews. More than half of the Jewish population of the USSR.

        But the Slavs mean destroyed in passing?
        Maybe there were documents on the resettlement and extermination of not only Jews? For example: Master Plan Ost!
        “Comments and suggestions on the Ost Master Plan”, drawn up in the form of a memo for Minister Rosenberg on April 27, 1942, Dr. E. Wetzel, head of the racial and political department of the Ministry of the Occupied Eastern Territories. The official prepared this note after reviewing the project developed by the planning group III of the RSHA in December 1941 (the source itself is considered lost).
        This document consists of four sections: 1) “General comments on the Ost master plan”; 2) “General comments on the issue of Germanization, especially about the future attitude towards the inhabitants of the former Baltic states”; 3) “To the solution of the Polish question”; 4) "On the issue of future treatment of the Russian population."

        The last section is devoted to the “Russian question”. The author of the notes attaches him great importance in the context of "the whole Eastern problem." He gives the point of view of the doctor of anthropological sciences Wolfgang Abel, who proposed either to completely destroy the Russians or to Germanize a certain part of them that has “obvious Nordic signs”. On this occasion, Wetzel writes: "The path proposed by Abel to eliminate the Russians as a people, not to mention the fact that its implementation would hardly be possible, is also not suitable for us for political and economic reasons."
        In response to this, Wetzel offers his own version of "solving the Russian problem", which provides for "separate national development", "weakening of the Russian people in racial terms" and "undermining the biological strength of the people" through a series of measures leading to fertility reduction. He also recommends promoting the separation of Siberians from Russians.

        The Germans had plans for everyone.

            Yes, I agree. There was no order on the mass extermination of Slavs in the camps, or simply not yet known. But even without an order, the destruction was carried out both in the death camps, in the same ones in which Jews were killed, and in prisoner of war camps.
            And the Germans acted not only on orders, but on the contrary, they killed, relieving themselves of any responsibility in accordance with the Barbarossa plan:
            Along with the “Order of the Commissioners” and the “Orders for the Treatment of Soviet Prisoners of War” issued in connection with the implementation of the “Barbarossa Plan”, the decree “On the application of military jurisdiction in the Barbarossa region” was one of the Wehrmacht's criminal orders.

            For actions committed by Wehrmacht personnel and service personnel against enemy civilians, there will be no compulsory prosecution even in cases where these actions are a war crime or misconduct.

              Death camps (not to be confused with concentration camps) were created exclusively for Jews and Gypsies. And only Jews and Gypsies were purposefully killed, both in camps and in shooting ditches. Representatives of other nationalities could be killed because of mental illness, because of participation in underground organizations, because of the inability to work. But not because of nationality. The Nazis destroyed the same village of Lidice in order to intimidate the Czechs after the assassination of Heydrich, and Khatyn because of the bombing of German officers on a partisan mine (the 118th schutzmanscap almost entirely consisted of Slavs from eastern Ukraine).

                  The 118th Schutzmanschaft was formed in early 1942 in Kiev from former Red Army soldiers from the east of Ukraine and volunteers from the villages of the Kiev region (collective farmers). Later, a company from the 115th Schutzmanschaft was added to it, which was recruited from the "Seluk" Bukovina (Bukovinsky kuren). In the autumn-winter of 1942, the Germans banned Ukrainian symbols in both battalions (yellow-blue chevrons and tridents), removed the Westerners from command posts, replacing them with former commanders of the Red Army, arrested several members of the OUN (Melnikovites) for anti-German activities, which caused mass desertion of former allies from among the Ukrainian nationalists. As a result, in December 1942, before being sent to Belarus, the overwhelming majority of the police officers of both battalions were from the East of Ukraine, and the entire command staff served in the Red Army before the war and at the beginning of the war. And so as not to go twice - by definition, there could not be Bandera in Khatyn, since the OUN (b) went underground and stopped cooperation with the Germans even earlier than the OUN (m)

      Perhaps the point is in the ratio between survivors and the dead, and not in absolute numbers. Obviously, the percentage of deaths among the Slavs is less than the percentage of Jews killed in the entire population. Our 27 million people include the dead Soviet Jews. They are simultaneously included in the number of 6 million victims of the Holocaust.

        I believe that this is a post-war wrong policy.
        True losses were hidden because their publication would certainly raise questions about the mistakes of the Soviet leadership in the prewar and initial period of the war.
        They remembered the war only once a year, for several decades it took to count the number of deaths, and the numbers each time changed by millions of people.
        For 55 years after the war, the USSR Ministry of Defense practically eliminated itself from prospecting and the funeral of millions of missing soldiers and whose bones are still unburied, although it was possible to allocate soldiers for such a holy cause, instead of building summer cottages for the generals.
        The collaborators received quick forgiveness, and they were reluctant to deal with them. It got ridiculous when the policemen in the 70-80s demanded themselves veteran benefits.
        The Cold War interrupted work between Western and Soviet courts and, as a result, many traitors settled in the West and remained unpunished.
        The interconnection of generations was interrupted, as a result, many pro-Nazi groups appeared in the country-winners of Nazism.

      Because SOMEONE decided that a liter of blood of a Soviet person cannot be compared to a tear of a Jew.
      And even you, by writing the expression - Why NO ONE mentions this? - subconsciously wrote with a capital NOBODY, and wrote with a small letter about "this".
      But I would like it to be the other way around.
      This "nobody" is a tiny amount. But "THIS" is a terrible figure.

After all, all this - both the justification of the White Cossacks, the White Guards interventionists, and the justification of Hitler and the Nazis and their accomplices from among the citizens of the USSR - all this was done by the enemies of the USSR and the Soviet people in order to slander the Bolshevik Communists.

            And where did Solzhenitsyn's mythical "110 million victims of communism" come from? In addition to his deceitful 66 million "victims of communism", he also added to them all the Soviet citizens killed by the Nazis, sharply increasing the death toll - he has 44 million people.

              You are very sensitive to the Soviet state power. Power is not sacred if it is not theocracy. I have not come across conventional theses of the times of "perestroika", which would make good enemies of the Soviet state and the PEOPLE. About what you have come across and how do you know that this is "deliberately insolent, demonstrative slander" I have already asked you. I still have not forgotten and am waiting for an answer.

              Solzhenitsyn cited the numbers that he came across, these were approximate figures based on advanced fortune telling techniques on coffee grounds, no more. Now his data on repressions are nowhere to be considered valid.
              The character himself is a great example of how the repressive Soviet system nurtured people who would hate it with all the fibers of the soul. I note that all the reasons for this gave him.

And for me it turns out that in that pre-war it was probably impossible in another way. It was impossible to do without repression, landings, links, executions. Not that situation was. It is now easy for us to reason and draw conclusions. And then the country was rebuilt, almost from scratch. And those or other victims were inevitable. Of course they screwed it up, but they did a lot.
                        If now suddenly return the 58th article, do you think a lot of people will fall under it? All these stolen bureaucrats, unscrupulous businessmen, negligent heads of cities, regions. All of these people were then called short and clear - pests. And they received a deserved punishment for their crimes.

                        What was K. Miretskov guilty of?
                        In the winter of 1941, Meretskov had a conflict with an employee of the Special Department who was following him, whom Kirill Afanasyevich said that he did not want to live and that the special officers in the NKVD had urinated on his head [9]. According to the testimony of a colleague of O. F. Souvenir, Major General A. I. Korneev, who was personally present during the conversation between I. Kh. Baghramyan and S. K. Timoshenko, the latter said that in a personal conversation with Meretskov he asked why he self-incriminating himself, the marshal said that he was bullied, “taunted”, and in case of testimony they promised not to touch the family.
                        Without this, too, a new happy country cannot be built? Without scarab? Without executions? It is impossible to build happiness on the blood and lies of what the Communists have fully proved. The Russian Empire for 5 years was dying in the agony of civil war, the USSR collapsed like a balloon, not even one Communist did not join the partisans.

                        Those real communists just proved the opposite - they built a country, gave people jobs, education, medicine, science, culture. You are crying about the shot. And you look at whom and for what you put against the wall. Do you pour tears on Vlasovites and Bandera? Or according to Tukhachevsky and the team? For whom exactly? Yes, they were innocently convicted, it is a fact. But the Empire, how many were there? You know? I personally do not. And you don’t need to take any separate example and take it to the absolute.
                        If you are not aware of the collapse of the Russian Empire, it’s not the Communists at all. Remind you who and when overthrew the king? Probably a good king was Nikolai the Bloody once he was kicked out with a rag with a rag from the throne. Apparently the people were tired of a good well-fed life and decided to overthrow the king the priest.

The same song about the USSR was overthrown, ruined from a good and satisfying life, hunted for western clothes, and packs of bottles collected?
                        At the last.

Without revolutions and great social cataclysms. You give an example of the United States in the era of the Great Depression, give an example of the totalitarian and dictatorial regimes of Hungary, Poland, Spain, Italy.

                        Norway did not destroy or torture its citizens to achieve socialism in practice, and not as communists empty promises, moreover, Norway is a parliamentary monarchy. If this method works, then why take an example from those countries that tortured and killed their citizens to obtain social justice? Am I moral like Sharikov?

    Even if the losses of the Germans were less than ours in absolute numbers, it should be borne in mind that the German population was almost half the population of the USSR. Therefore, it seems to me that it is correct to compare the losses of the two countries and as a percentage of their population.

      To the losses of Germany one must add the losses of Austria, Italy, Finland, Romania, Hungary, Czechoslovakia as well (in 1941-1943 Czechoslovak driver mechanics fought in Czechoslovak tanks captured by Hitler in 1938, there were many Czech pilots), Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian, Belgian, French, Slovak, Ukrainian, Croatian SS divisions, 15 Don cavalry corps, RON Kaminsky and Voskoboynik brigades, ROA Vlasov, all kinds of national legions: Kalmyk, Georgian, Crimean Tatar, Chechen-Ingush ... And in Lithuanian the citizens of the USSR fought in the Latvian, Estonian, Ukrainian SS divisions, in the RON, in the ROA, in the national legions. Where can these losses be considered: the losses of the USSR or the losses of Germany and allies? I personally believe that the losses of these units should be subtracted from the losses of the Red Army and added to the losses of Germany and the Allies.

    ager1751 "Military personnel were killed 18-20 million. 60% of the conscripts did not return from the war, which amounts to 35-18 million from the officially conscripted 20 million."

    6,3 million dead, about whom everything is known, up to the place of burial + 3.8 million missing.
    Take a look at the pre-war census (yourself) and you will find out that the population of the USSR amounted to 200 million people before the war, including 51 million men of draft age, including those who were 1941 years old in 14 and started to be called up in 1945.
    out of 51 million men:
    27 million called up in the Red Army
    3.5 million in the NKVD
    4.5 million to the Labor Army
    at least 5 million unfit for military service due to health reasons
    3 to 5 million men were killed by Germans in the occupied territories of the USSR
    about 2 million were in camps
    at least a million representatives of repressed peoples, who also stopped calling.
    There remain 3-5 million people employed in hard and highly skilled jobs that cannot be replaced by women and children.
    The USSR has no reserves of people! According to Soviet data! Therefore, any increase in losses of new "researchers" is an obvious absurdity when you know the big picture.
    According to the Red Army.
    27 million is called upon. (3 million were +24 million called for during the war years)
    at the end of the war, 11 million + 1 million wounded were treated
    4 million laid off for health reasons (disabled)
    fatalities 6.3 million
    3.8 million missing
    laid off in connection with a conviction for more than 8 years, up to the execution of 0.5 million people
    0.5 million people transferred to other ministries and departments
    If some "researcher" claims that the dead and missing are not 10 million people, but 17 million, then he needs to squeeze these additional 7 million not only into the number of the Red Army, but also into the number of the USSR. And DO NOT OWN! NO!

There are no exact numbers. How many recruits called up in the territories that were subsequently occupied? Only approximate estimated numbers.

      Have you seen the mass graves? In all that I met, more than 60 percent are unknown warriors. Look also at the books of Memory - they are in every region, every district - the same picture is there. Counted on several pages in several areas - most are reported as missing. I wonder why not count on all the books in memory of the dead soldiers? The error would be in thousands (tens, maybe hundreds of thousands), but not in millions or tens of millions of dead. Why is the data on the war still classified? In particular for spare shelves. My opinion is that the losses of the USSR have always been and remain politics, the desire to prove this or that, and at the state level they have never been the desire to count them and name them. Although ... In 1947, a courtyard detour was made in order to establish all the dead servicemen, but the data obtained as a result was closed for decades (there is a Memorial in the OBD). By the way, in the courtyard bypass cards the same picture that I mentioned - most of them are missing.

    In the scientific community, Viktor Nikolayevich Zemskov has the most significant word to date. All data about any lost Isaev must check with him.
    Up to 22 million of our losses. Everything else is innuendo.
    You can rant for a very long time and add millions for the weight of our victory, but only this is the reverse and very dangerous side of the coin. We didn’t throw anyone with corpses.
    7 million added artificially for specific purposes.
    And Isaev - for a long time and stubbornly arranges ideological sabotage.
    Although I have not watched this video and am not going to - I condemn it with pleasure. For I know well about the court historian, a lover of reconstruction.
    Zemskov last name doctor of historical sciences, Zemskov! This is the benchmark in the study of our losses. Authoritative no. Before! 22 million. Dot.
    Gorbachev and Yakovlev should sound a curse here, and not gasp sighs. Their work is to falsify data in addition to the revisionists of the past.

    Commanders of all ranks who directly participated in the battles were absolutely not interested in hiding or minimizing losses. For you will not show the loss, you will not receive the replenishment. Very often it turned out that a soldier who was recorded as killed, and even more often as missing, turned out to be alive (evacuated by orderlies and ended up in a hospital, left after the battle to the location of another unit, from where he could no longer be returned to his former unit) , - my father-in-law, who fought from 43rd until the end of the war, told me about this; he almost completely lost his platoon twice, so he knows it firsthand. My grandfather went missing near Kharkov in 43, naturally, was among the "losses", but it turned out that he was in captivity, then fled from it and from the middle of the 44th until the end of the war he fought again. Therefore, I believe that the losses of the Red Army are, rather, overestimated for such quite understandable reasons.

    If the media work FOR the country, they will inspire the people. So that even a lost war will look like a victory. If they are in the hands of the enemy, everything will be the other way around. Therefore, if we turn to the data that cannot be forged, the picture appears somewhat different.

    By the beginning of the Second World War, the population of the USSR was 190 million. After six months of hostilities, the territories were occupied by about 40 million people. Kiev and Smolensk were taken at the end of 1943, and Minsk in July 1944. That is, until the summer of 1944, tens of millions lived in the occupation. What human resources did the USSR have all this time? It turns out - 150 million.

    The countries of the Hitler Axis initially had no less human resources. And in 1943 Hitler already announced a total mobilization, and in 1944 - a conscription from the age of 16. In 1945, all males from 12 to 70 years old went to the front. So who had the loss problem?

    The tale about the fact that the losses of the winners are much greater than those of the losers is designed for nerds. This has never happened in the history of war.
