Lubyanka was the core of murkiness of the old USSR, the famous central command of the KGB and home of a notorious correctional facility where spies, political protesters, and different foes of the State were detained, questioned, and tormented.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn depicted the abhorrence of the Lubyanka, where he was detained, in his epic book The Gulag Archipelago.
Simeon Vilensky, a lady who invested energy in the Lubyanka, depicted the loathsome hush of the jail around evening time. An old joke called Lubyanka the tallest working in Moscow, since Siberia could be seen from its storm cellar.
The watchmen were not permitted to talk and conveyed in the murkiness by clicking their tongues, a clamor that was punctuated just by the incidental moan or a detainee.
