I'm Danish. The Nazis invaded our land in 6 hours, so I... erm... *intensely dislike* the nazis. But when that happened, what did the USSR do? Absolutely, positively NOTHING. So this debate happening down in the comments, I DON'T LIKE EITHER. Thanks! ^-^
I dont. 😑I'm saying ussr was bad because they attacked us. And yes, we were allies of nazi Germany, but we regret that. Still ussr worst. They had no reason for attacking (except wanting land) because it was before we became allies of nazi Germany.

Plus, we became allies of nazi Germany because we believed that they can help us get back land we lost in Continuation War. Ussr made us do it.
We didn't. We lost Continuation War, not winter war.

If u want to know better: Actually who won the war can be looked into from so many perspectives. USSR objective was to just take Finland back in the war. I would think that southern part of Finland would have had been a great place to deploy to mid europe from north. Finlands objective was to stay independent. USSR did not reach their objective however Finland is still independent country. Alliance with Nazis also is not exactly true. We received military aid from Germany, we did receive help from many other countries also like Sweden. There where a pact betwean Germany and Finland that Germany would not attack Finland as long as we would fight against soviet russia.
Afterall USSR deployed nearly 1mil troops against Finlands betwean years 1939-1940. Finlands had manpower of 345 000 from what nearly 12 000 was from different countries. In 4 months during the winter war (what is mostlikely the most known) Finland humiliated USSR army with nearly 126 000 KIA and 188 000 WIA. For finland these stats where quite opposite 25 000 KIA and 43 000 WIA.
So yes, wohoo, I would say Finns whre relatively good killing men in snow and ice. But FYI most of russian casulties where not from attacks to "heavily fortified positions" but with guerilla warfare and ambushes.
