The first three issues of KVADRAT were printed officially by the city komsomol (Gorkom Komsomol). Later issues were samizdat. The Jazz club had a large number of covers left with an official responsibility statement of the city komsomol (Gorkom Komsomol). They used these covers for later issues to make an illegal publication seem legal. When issues No. 11 and No. 12 were discovered by the authorities of the Palace of Culture where the Jazz Club was located, the publcation was moved to Novosibirsk.(FEIE 99-100).
The official responsibility statement used on issue covers:
"LENINGRADSKII GORODSKOI KOMITET VLKSM
DVORETS KUL'TURY im. S. M. KIROVA
LENINGRADSKII GORODSKOI DZHAZOVYI KLUB" (BRE No. 9 cover).
