Khrushchev ordered a construction of the Berlin Wall because he wanted to separate the communist and the democratic parts of the city. The communists where well known fro putting on barriers, be it physical or political where their zones of interest were bordering the ones of their enemies. In order to stop the spread of the democratic ideas in their area and thus having social problems and unrest to deal with, the Soviets decided to to put a physical barrier, thus stopping the people to communicate, move between the two parts of the city, or even see each other.
Khrushchev claimed that the wall was erected to protect its population from fascist elements from West Berlin that conspired to avoid the popular will to build a socialist state in East Germany. Although, in fact it was built to avoid the massive exodus of the Eastern Block's inhabitants towards the freedom they found in West Berlin, the exit gate of Soviet influence.
The building of the Berlin Wall was for namely preventing the exodus of East Germans from East to West Berlin then to West Germany.
The eastern area of Germany that was held by the Soviets became the so-called German Democratic Republic (RDA), and the other three formed a single area, which was the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG).
In the following years, the western zone began to prosper while the Soviet side suffered economic problems. This, caused millions of Berliners who lived under the communist regime to migrate to West Berlin.
It is for this reason that Nikita Khrushchev from the GDR orders the construction of a provisional wall that divided the city in two.
