What Russian action almost triggered another European conflict?
Communist propaganda almost triggered another European conflict. Also, the raising of the Berlin Wall and the rest of the Iron Curtain nearly drove the former Allied Powers to another conflict. The Soviet Union's seizure of most of eastern Europe and eastern Berlin was not what the Allies had agreed upon prior to the end of World War II and was seen by the US, Britain and France as outright aggression by the Soviet Union that might only be prevented by military action by the remaining Allied Powers against the Soviet Union.
