I don’t think I’ve met kinder, more generous people than Ukrainians. But I wonder why such a friendly and charitable society would live their personal lives behind fences. Whether the home is large and ornate or tiny and somewhat ramshackle, it will be fronted by a fence. Some of the fences are also large and ornate and some are barely standing, but no home is without one (at least not in the neighborhood where I’m living).
Some of the reasons I’ve been told are to keep the families’ dogs and chickens from roaming, but also to keep burglars from entering. Whether it’s for protection or privacy, these fences add interest and beauty to the streets they line. See for yourself:
