Kholodnyi Yar does not stop impressing us. Here's the video made in Ivkivtsi of the Chyhyryn region of the Cherkasy oblast. The main subject is the window shutters. Nazar Lavrinenko, who is the local inhabitant, head of the NGO "Ukrainian mill-studying association" tells in more details about this.

Today it's very hard to find ancient shutters but you can meet the renewed type. That is why it's very important that there are people who try to preserve the elements of traditional life and present it.

Window shutters were produced from the wood or other material that covered completely or partly the window panel. The solid ones protected the glass from damage and prevented the heat loss in the cold season. These shutters do not let the sun rays through.
