    The ongoing conflict in Ukraine threatens to be the biggest risk to peace between the West and Russia since the end of the Cold War era.

    In the late 1940s, Eastern European countries became satellites of the Soviet Union, including East Germany, Poland, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, and Romania. The United States and the West responded by creating NATO in 1949.

    In 1961, the Soviets built the Berlin Wall, a symbol of the Cold War. During the 1950s through the late 1980s, the threat of nuclear war between the West and the Soviet Union hung over Europe and the rest of the world. The Cuban Missile Crisis of the 1960s was when many experts believe the world came closest to falling into nuclear conflict.

    The arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union, and their respective allies during the Cold War, only increased geopolitical tensions and the fear of the general public. This would not end until 1991 when the power and influence of the Soviet Union waned and its communist regime imploded.

    For anyone born in the last 30 years, it’s hard to truly understand the fears that surrounded people experiencing nuclear war even in the 1980s. There were public information broadcasts about what to do in the event of an attack; even children growing up in that decade were aware of the serious talk surrounding the possibility of nuclear war.
