Actually, if you look at the stats differently, you might say the US and USSR/Russia are much the same. Both had two flights kill all the astronauts on board. And the Shuttle had flights like STS27 where there was major heat shield damage that the vehicle survived. The Shuttle both carried cargo and astronauts into orbit, and was much more complicated than Soyuz, so it might be reasonable to say the US has the better safety culture.
