In the movies, he has a version of the super-soldier serum, so the Soviets wouldn't be so eager to give him back.
How would the Soviets know he's got a version of the serum, if Bucky himself doesn't even know that? Again, it comes down to finding a wounded American soldier behind enemy lines --- how and why would Soviet troops decide to kidnap him, experiment on him, brainwash him? And even if/when they *did* find out he's got some kind of superpowers, why on earth would Stalin waste that on making him a programmed assassin, instead of turning him into a propaganda tool just like Captain America was? They'd try to flaunt him as "Captain Soviet" or something.
