How was splitting Berlin problematic at the end of WWII?

Initially, the wall/division severed the arteries necessary for West German existence at a time when reconstruction was imperative. Family/relatives were separated.

Because most of Germany was occupied by the Russians, and there was Berlin in the Middle of Russian East Germany, occupied by Russians, French, British and American. The communists did not want people to defect to the western quarters, so they build a wall and fences around the western part of Berlin, cutting it off from other western countries.
