Russian Mob

This is the most brutal form of organized crime. They have a nickname, bravta, which means brotherhood in Russian.

The Russian mob has existed since the time of the czars. In those times, it existed in the form of banditry and thievery. Desperate for money, many government agents turned to crime as a way to pay the bills. In 1993, almost all banks in Russia had been owned by the mafia and almost 80% of them had to pay protection money.
