On the official website of the party, its legal address is indicated: Moscow, Leningradskoe shosse, building 8, building 3 (it is also used for sending correspondence). Transformer substation TP-3305 is located at the same address, it follows from the data on the website of the Medvedkovo district council. The fact that this is a 114 sq. m, is confirmed by the USRN data. Judging by the photograph published by the "Interlocutor", we are talking about a brick building with blank doors and high-voltage wires.

At the same time, next to the transformer box there is a residential building, which has several buildings, in particular the third (its address: Leningradskoe shosse, 8 building 3). The database of legal entities "Kontur.Fokus" indicates that the party is registered at the address Leningradskoe shosse, 8/3; whether it is a case or a structure, it is not indicated. The Moscow branch of the People Against Corruption party, which is registered as a separate legal entity, is located at Leningradskoe shosse, 8, building 3.

The founder of the People Against Corruption party, Mikhail Zmeenkov, told Open Media that he was not surprised that a transformer box could be located at the address of a political force. “We created a party to counterbalance the work of [Alexei] Navalny, and now it is completely formal,” he said.
