Why doesn't Germany today not have the same male deficit problem as former USSR countries?

A multitude of commentators today in geopolitics remark about the shadow that looms over former USSR countries’ demographics, the male deficit created by WW2, but countries like Germany suffered a great number of male deaths per capita yet have seemingly recovered their demographics affliction. When was this male deficit overcome?

West Germany relied on immigration, the ‘guest worker’ programme.

2022 - 1945 = 77 years. So the second world war can not be the reason why the demographics are so different. Two reasons why there is a differce how the femal numbers of surplus are so much higher (above age 41) in post Soviet states: Wodka and workplace safty. Massive (unbelievabal) alcohol consume is part of the Russian (male) culture.
