    Brief East Europe information


    Eastern Europe is a socio-political concept mainly influenced by the Cold War, which largely defined its borders. Its boundaries were effectively forged in the final stages of World War II and came to encompass all European countries which came under Soviet influence and control. As such these countries had communist regimes imposed upon them and neutral countries were classified by the nature of their political regimes. Of course today East Germany was absorbed by West Germany through the German reunification, becoming a part of Western Europe by default.
