“The willingness of Finnish volunteers to kill Soviet prisoners was probably higher than kill civilians”

Sounds like virtue signaling self gratification to me.

Russians 7.8 million
Jews 5–6 million
Poles 3 million
Spanish Republicans 7,000
Jehovah Witnesses 5000
The Germans thought, "those damn Jehovah Witnesses showing up at people's doors". I was surprised to find out there were more Russians killed in the Holocaust than Jews.
The thing that surprises me about Holocaust is how many people died of starvation in forced labor camps run by the state, that is, German Corporations.

Yeah, Stalin was a great guy.
And I'm sure all those who died in The Great Purge or as a result of his forced resettlement policies or those who perished in the Gulags and places like Katyn etc will agree with you.
Yeah, he was an all round good egg was your guy Stalin.
That you revere him as much as you so obviously do is yet further proof of your own moral compass.

Your alternative history research is quite fun. The facts are that the USSR and Stalin saved the lives of millions of Jews from Poland, the Baltic States and the western regions of the USSR, evacuated millions of people inland. In the Saratov region and near the city of Tashkent, Stalin formed the army of Anders, which included tens of thousands of Jews. Tens of thousands of civilian Jews from Poland, including the future Israeli Prime Minister, Yitzhak Shamir, together with the Anders army from the USSR, arrived in Palestine through Iran, where they began a war of independence against the British administration. In Russia, there still exists Jewish national-territorial autonomy in the center in the city of Birobidzhan. It was created by Stalin. Where else in the world is this?
After the war, Stalin created an army for the defense of Israel in Czechoslovakia. All main parts were formed by Soviet instructors, weapons and equipment also supplied the USSR.
For example: The Elite of the IDF, the Golani brigade, was originally called the Gottwald Brigade and was formed in Czechoslovakia. Her first commander is the Hero of the Soviet Union Antonin Sohor. She was transferred to Palestine through Italy.
A large number of all types of weapons were sent to Israel through Czechoslovakia, including mortars, artillery, and German Messerschmitt captured fighters. Most of the weapons and ammunition were from stocks of German captured weapons, which removed the question of who supplies weapons to Palestinian Jews. Earlier military commanders had something to fight. By the way, the Czechs earned good money by selling their own weapons made at the Škoda and ChZ factories. At the airfield in České Budějovice, future Jewish aces got acquainted with the airplanes that were to be piloted. There, in České Budějovice, tankers and paratroopers were trained. One and a half thousand infantrymen of the Israel Defense Forces were taught in Olomouc, another two thousand in Mikulov. The medical staff was taught in Velk-Ströbn. Radio operators and telegraph operators - in Liberec. Electricians - in Pardubice. Soviet instructors gave lectures on political topics to young Israelis.
It was Stalin and Gromyko who insisted that the UN adopt a resolution on the independence of Israel. On this day, all of Israel was filled with portraits of Stalin. Nahum Goldman, President of the World Zionist Organization, wrote:
“Without the Soviet Union, the state of Israel would not exist at all. And not so much because the Russians voted for its creation, but rather because during the Arab invasion of 1948-1949, Israel received all the weapons from the communist countries. ”
Consider that by showing a similar ingratitude to the Russian people, you are now exposing future generations of Jews. As with the repetition of the Holocaust, Russia and the Russians will not save anyone for the second time.
About propaganda. The story of pedophiles who have become “victims of the Holocaust” has a very interesting sequel. It factually shows the methods of propaganda of Israel. If you want, I will bring them
