Treblinka Square?

Kerry said he was at the KGB HQ in Treblinka Square. Isn't the KGB HQ in Lubyanka Square?

I believe the building was called the Lubyanka, and housed Lefortovo prison in the basement. The square where they were located - across from a children's store called Dyetski Mir - was called Dzherzinsky square. It was named after Felix Dzherzinsky who headed the Cheka, Lenin's secret policy and the forerunner of the HKVD/GPU/KGB.
