Did Communists stymie the development of suburbs in Eastern Europe?

Based on this map of Europe's population growth, I've noticed that there is much more suburban growth in Eastern Europe than there is in Western Europe (at least, it's more visible in Eastern Europe; in various parts of Western Europe, population growth is all over the place rather than largely in the suburbs):

Wo Europas Bevölkerung wächst und schrumpft

Did Communists stymie the development of suburbs in Eastern Europe back when EE was under Communist rule? If so, would this explain why there appears to be a catch-up effect in Eastern Europe right now where EE is gradually experiencing large-scale suburban growth like Western Europe previously did?
