Worst Entrance Award Given

The Moscow branch of the Just Russia party has awarded the title of "Most Horrible Entrance" to a residential building at 5 Ulitsa Kominterna in the city's Babushkinsky district, based on a photograph submitted by a user named Mikhail, who won an iPad for his entry, Lenta.ru reported.

The building was chosen from over 500 entries nominated for the "honor" on the party's чистыйподъезд.рф web site.

Babushkinsky placed fourth among the city's worst neighborhoods in a separate poll taken on the web site. That survey was led by the outlying Veshnyaki and Losinoostrovsky districts.
