I have written here, including you. I don't know how to write in English. Read in Finnish and English. Writing-can't. Sorry.
You can ask again. I'll try to answer a simple proposal. Sometimes I forget that the possibilities of electronic translators are not unlimited.
This is just from memory, IIRC in one of the documentaries describing the fighting at Suomussalmi and Raate road stated that no one checked all the Soviet casualties from the woods, not Finns and not Soviets.
Soviet commanders (I suppose as the Finnish commanders) believed the loss not bodies in the forest, and by the lack of people in a specific organizational unit. Conditionally. In one Division to the beginning of the war the 14 thousand man. On 15 January -12000. During this time received 2000 people. Calculate loss Division-elementary task. And the number of found dead is a conditional and difficult verifiable.
