The wing fences on Mig fighters was an aero "band aid" installed to mitigate bad stall characteristics, not to reduce aero drag. The wing fences keeps the detached airflow that first appears at the wing root of swept wings as the Mig approaches stall speed from spreading out to the wing tip where it would hamper the roll response of the ailerons.
