First LBK and later TRB, though of course their eastward spread was limited; there may have been an IE component in the Tripolye culture as well (pre-Greek?). As I pointed out, there were residual non-Satem groups in the east, so presumably the spread of GA was only part of the IE expansion to the east, but I daren't speculate about the linguistic status of the steppe cultures ca. 3000 BC.
