According to Churchill, "It was the Red Army that tore the guts out of the Nazi war machine."
Right, and acknowledged by most... But while you are "counting the bodies" you are again deliberately ignoring the fact that both Khrushchev and Georgy Zhukov (aka "Marshal of Victory") and many others at the top of Soviet hierarchy have admitted that none of that would be possible without Lend-Lease program provided by the USA to many allies. In real life, documented - not propaganda, not lazy Hollywood movies.
Re your ad hominem It's perfectly fine that you are stupid. Decades of propaganda and lazy Hollywood movies made you stupid. - stop reading and watching propaganda, Hollywood or any other, and read a few history books and docs like this:
Marshal of Victory: The Autobiography of General Georgy Zhukov ; Language. English ; Publisher. Pen and Sword Military - definitely not Hollywood

But the Soviet Union was never alone: Months before the United States formally entered the war, it had already begun providing massive military and economic assistance to its Soviet ally through the Lend-Lease program.
... Most famously, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin raised a toast to the Lend-Lease program at the November 1943 Tehran conference with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt.
"I want to tell you what, from the Russian point of view, the president and the United States have done for victory in this war," Stalin said. "The most important things in this war are the machines.... The United States is a country of machines. Without the machines we received through Lend-Lease, we would have lost the war."
Nikita Khrushchev offered the same opinion.
"If the United States had not helped us, we would not have won the war," he wrote in his memoirs. "One-on-one against Hitler's Germany, we would not have withstood its onslaught and would have lost the war. No one talks about this officially, and Stalin never, I think, left any written traces of his opinion, but I can say that he expressed this view several times in conversations with me."
By the way, from the ""estimated 25 million Soviet citizens perished in the titanic conflict with Nazi Germany between June 1941 and May 1945 - 8 million (almost a third) was from Ukraine, much smaller Soviet Republic than Russian Republic, not counting inclusion of many smaller minorities from southern and Asian / eastern republics.
Now read your last paragraph out loud while looking the mirror - will do you good next time before you slander someone you know nothing about, even if you are "... this confident about a subject..."
