Stalin promised that after the war was over the Eastern European  countries that were occupied by the Soviets the nations would be  allowed free elections and create constitutions. Ultimately Stalin  wanted to keep these countries as buffers. Very quickly after the fall  of Germany, Stalin created puppet states with the occupied states.

History 1003 12-04-06 In 1946 Churchill realized the treat that the Soviets were a threat.  At a graduation speech in Missouri, Churchill said that Stalin used  an “iron curtain” to keep captive Europe from free Europe.  How would Germany be treated? The Western half was occupied by US, Great Britain, and France.  The Eastern was occupied by Russia. The occupation would stay to  keep the Germans out of trouble, but it would be reunited into a  new German republic. After things became quite, then the allie  troops would go home. Berlin was split in half. Stalin didn’t want  non-Russian troops in his part of Eastern Germany. Stalin put a blockade on West Berlin which was occupied by  France, US, and British. The US launched the Berlin Airlift in which  the Aircrafts brought in everything the people needed.
