Soviet pillbox Krasnogorsk

The pillbox (ZHBOT) is situated near the factory where it was produced in 1941. Originally the pillbox was installed near the town Volokolamsk, but several years ago was moved to its nowdays place as the monument of Second World war. The employees of the factory made mistake with the paint of the pillbox, Soviet pillboxes of WW2 time didn't have such a colour.
