Running with obstacles

In theory, globalization should lead to a world without borders, the sharing of knowledge and integration of the economy in a balanced production and consumption markets. This is in theory and in the future but in practice and now - have become a popular trend,"walls".

In today's world started to rise again walls, in the likeness of the Great Wall of China. Or the Great Wall in the Croatian town Ston. Nearly six-kilometer unique fortification of the 14th century, the original its purpose is to protect the salt works of Peljesac and the narrow passage from the mainland to peninsula.Ston

A more accurate example of modern "building" will be the Berlin Wall, which divided the country in half, and it's not a figure of speech, but a real wall - engineering-equipped and fortified state border of the GDR. A quarter-century since the fall of the Berlin Wall, walls of this kind back in fashion.

Ukraine is trying to build a wall on the border with Russia, which is very difficult and even impossible in territory not controlled by the authorities. September 5, 2014 the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the project "The Wall" for the Development of the Ukrainian-Russian border. The project envisages the establishment of a border between the two defensive lines, their main purpose will be to prevent penetration into the territory of Ukraine.

Estonia and Latvia decided to wall itself off from the Russian Federation

Estonian Police and Border Guard intends to equip at least two-thirds of the land border with Russia fence height of two and a half meters in order to "prevent border violations", the top of the fence will be reinforced with barbed wire. The total length of the wall will be about 108 km.

Ukraine and the Baltic countries built their walls for protection against the aggression of the Russian Federation, but the walls, they are also different. Medieval city walls in the practice of the modern world is not relevant, as the city grew to epic proportions. However, when the country erupt hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, civilized countries have to resort to primitive methods.Mexico granitsa

Curbing illegal migration via "wall" is not a new practice in the world. For example, more than 3 thousand. Km of the state border of Mexico and the United States about one-third the length of the metal barrier, the famous Mexican-American wall.

Let's see what Relay Race was formed on the way of refugees from Syria, and everyone who joins them on their way to Europe:
