What is the difference between a satellite state and a country's 'sphere of influence' I've been looking online for a while but I can't seem to find a specific answer to my question! Specific definitions of each a satellite state and a sphere of influence would be useful too! Thank you! (My exam board is Edexcel and I'm taking my history GCSE in 2017.)

Satellite state is a country affected by a country's sphere of influence. For example, Russia had a sphere of influence and as a consequence, countries like Czechoslovakia and Hungary were satellite states.

They're pretty similar. For example, the GDR is both a satellite state and within the USSR's sphere of influence.

A satellite state can be defined as a country whose government has been selected/endorsed by the USSR, but is not a member of the USSR.

The idea of a sphere of influence is a tricky one, because influence cannot be objectively measured. However, you could generally say that the Soviet sphere of influence extended across all of its satellite states and over other 'Communist' countries such as China, North Korea, Cuba etc.

Thank you! Do you know an exact definition for both terms? Would be very useful
