Some years ago the Soviet Union compiled a database, in Russian, listing all Soviet soldiers who died in WWII.  This database, https://obd-memorial.ru/html, contains 20 million documents and provides a wealth of information on individuals not otherwise available, including ethnic origin, e.g. Jewish, Russian, Kazakh, etc.  In many cases, but not all, researchers may find information about a surviving relative, even with an address where that person resided.  A separate database. http://podvignaroda.ru??#tab=navthome, provides information on soldiers who received medals in WWII.
