Pillbox Ochakovo

This is an abandoned pillbox in the depth of an industrial area of the district of Ochakovo. The pillbox was built in 1941 as the part of Moscow defensive lines. In Soviet time students of the nearest professional school looked after it. But now this rare piece of war history is completely abandoned. Not for a long time ago homeless people lived inside.
