) and Hydra will be behind it all.
and im saying no because the way it seemed when Bucky fell in The First Avenger, he couldnt have had the entire arm torn off like that. to counter that, i'd say that perhaps on his fall into the water, Bucky's arm was crushed so bad (like that one movie...cant remember its title, but it had James Franco in it
) that it had to be amputated. just a thought.
Nazis have a huge stigma attached to them. They're regarded as the most evil people in history.
The Soviets don't, and they aren't.
Besides, HYDRA DID have Nazi origins.
Similarly, Winter Soldier had past ties to the USSR, but at present is working for a businessman who happened to have once been a KGB officer.
