When, specifically, do you refer to ? The War in the East was massive. Britain & the US put much into the supply of war materiel by means of the Murmansk Convoys, but to supply the whole of the Red Army was a massive undertaking. Therefore I am saying that the idea of marching on Berlin from Stalingrad, given that the Russians effectively recaptured the whole of eastern Europe on the way, was a huge venture, however generous the West may have been. And though the US did supply tanks & so on to the Russians I see pictures of T34s & Kv1s & 2s rather than Shermans fighting off Panthers & Tigers. Despite the lack of German successes in their retreat it is undeniable that their defence was solid throughout: It was no easy fight for the Russians, no more so than in the West post D Day. To get to (I'm thinking) the point of the question, the Russians had no interest whatsoever in the establishment of a free democratic Poland, or free democratic anywhere else: The seeds of the 'Cold War' had alredy been sown. Stalin knew he would be the dominant figure in post war Europe & he was determined to establish the Warsaw Pact long before it took place in fact. Stalin was therefore determined to benefit Russia as he saw it and anyone who opposed him would suffer the consequences. But it does deserve re statement: The War in the East was a far greater conflict than any other theatre in WW2.

The Soviets were part of the Allied offensive against the German Nazis. They handled the Eastern Front. The Americans, Brits, French and many other countries (even Poles) handled the Western Front offensives. The Soviets also went to eastern Asia to fight against the Japanese in China and to invade Japan. They never had to invade Japan.

Sweden was impartial in WW2 but Finland fought together with the Germans against the Soviets.

They didn't. After Hitler's suicide, the Germans surrendered to the Allied command on the Western Front. Battles against the Soviets continued in German cities, sometimes hand-to-hand.
