Also some arithmetical exercises with data posted above.
Causalities of the 1 Baltic Front in 1944 (from monthly tables):
116 825 killed, 371 769 wounded, 13 737 missing and captured, 98 041 sick, 125 to frost, 4 392 others (non-combat losses), total 603 888 men.
According to "Soviet causalities and combat losses in the XX century"):
115 090 killed, 367 995 wounded, 13 788 missing, 97 519 sick, 124 to frost, 4 379 non-combat. Total 598 895 men.
Very similar figures.

Causalities of the 2 Baltic Front in 1944 (from ten-days tables):
97 974 killed, 329 500, 3 874 missing and captured. Total 431 348 battle casualties (information on non-battle casualties in the war diaries is obviously incomplete)
According to '"Soviet casualties and losses..."):
110 710 killed, 354 284 wounded, 7831 missing. Total 472 825 battle casualties.
The difference is partly due to some reports (20-31 March, 20-30 April) missing in the war diary, also tables in the war diary can be incomplete somewhat.

Casualties of the 2 Baltic Front in February-March 1945 (from ten-days tables):
24 607 killed, 89 725 wounded, 1541 missing. Total 115 873 battle casualties.
According to "Soviet casualties and combat losses..." the 2 Baltic Front lost from 1 January to 1 April 1945:
34 396 killed, 116 847 wounded, 3 656 missing. Total 154 899 battle casualties.
The difference equal to 39 206 must be mostly attributed to losses in January 1945, and it looks like a reasonable number.
