Accurate estimates are hard to come by, but according to the Dorling Kindersley Atlas of World History(which is as good a source as any) there were approx. 13.5 million Red Army/partisan deaths in the USSR(including 3.6 million Soviet POWs that died in German captivity). Given that the widely accepted total is 23 million(not inc. Stalin's murders in that period), the civilian dead numbers about 10 million.
