In the 1930s Lubyanka Prison was the feared destination of thousands of innocent victims of Stalin’s purges. Today the grey building looming on the northeastern side of Lubyanskaya pl is no longer a prison, but is the headquarters of the Federal Security Service, or Federalnaya Sluzhba Bezopasnosti . The FSB keeps a pretty good eye on domestic goings on. The building is not open to the public.
