Best Answer

The cold war divided Europe in Western and Eastern Europe.

After the second world war, Russia built a wall through the centre of Berlin (Germany). The communist party took control in many countries on the borders of Russia to build a buffer zone so that no one would be able to march in, start a war and kill tens of millions of russians.
