Not in the physical sence. Diplomatic relations might have been described as 'Frosty' between the Soviets & the rest of Europe and the US. Quite why this came about is difficult to understand. The Russian behaviour at the cessation of European hostilities in 1945 is, to me, incomprehensible. Their treatment of their so called Allies, principally the US & Britain, was unfriendly, and that puts it mildly in the extreme. Is anyone out there going to justify Soviet post war diplomatic policy ?

Since the cold war wasn't actually a war (it was a TERM), nothing was destroyed.

No bombs were actually used during the Cold War. That was why it was not a hot war.

no one was actually involved in a direct military confrontation.

Contradiction in terms; cold war means no war. The cold war would have terminated the split second war erupted.
