Civil (war) engineering

So you want to save on building materials? Fill an old oil barrel with rocks, plop some cement on top, and you have half a wall. Simply fill in the rest, and well… who’s going to notice!

I wonder if this quick DIY job was a result of the war (to get it done before the shelling resumed) or just because the person who built it wanted to save on concrete blocks.
