The Russian mafia can be traced back to Russia's imperial period, which began in the 1720s, in the form of banditry and thievery. Most of the population were peasants, in poverty at the time, and criminals who stole from government entities and divided profits among the people earned Robin Hood-like status, being viewed as protectors of the poor and becoming folk heroes. In time, the Vorovskoy Mir (Thieves' World) emerged as these criminals grouped and started their own code of conduct that was based on strict loyalty with one another and opposition against the government. When the Bolshevik Revolution came around in 1917, the Thieves' World was alive and active. Vladimir Lenin attempted to wipe them out, but failed, and the criminals survived into Joseph Stalin's reign.
In 2017 the Russian Mafia were officially back in action under new leadership and more organised than ever. The vory spokesman, & claimed power over the smaller, less organised organised crime group, Tsaryovskaya OPG. The result of this caused multiple prominent figures around Little Moscow to be knocked off as 'Crime lords' of East Beach and made way for a new kind of organised crime that caused the once peaceful part of the city to be one of the most dangerous. After the take over, the new and reformed Russian crime group was ran by Egorov (Egorovskaya OPG). EOPG gained a name for itself after a known hitman, Matvei Kiselyov, for the crime group was arrested on kidnapping, racketeering and gun charges, leaving two innocent people shot. The group was hit hard and put under immediate investigation.
Following on from the investigation on the group, in 2018 the leader, Egorov, three other gang members were arrested after an undercover sting recovered eight AK47, three silenced makarovs, and a variety of other weapons dating back to the cold war era, roughly $58,000 in cocaine and ecstasy and $100,000 in banded stacks of cash. The group was at a all time low for public appearances and with the incarceration of known members, and a huge blow to the crime group funds, EOPG dropped off from public eye and the last remaining members went into hiding to avoid being charged with crimes in the US. Matvei Kiselyov was later found dead after a suspected murder in which authorities believed was a blow back from the botched deal which led to two high ranking gang members being imprisoned.
ATF & DEA's confirmed organisations illegal activities
Through months of investigation and collecting sources from both witnesses and confidential informants, a list of confirmed gang activities has been formatted. Whatever the EOPG do, there's most likely money behind it.
The group currently has two main confirmed sources of income. importing and exporting related business. It's a known fact EOPG take advantage of the city when it comes to business and so most things are kept out of their home town.
Although the group seems to focus on two areas of income, they also have smaller methods of income such as credit card fraud, trading stolen cars and parts and firearm dealing.
After months in exile and keeping off the radar, members of EOPG have emerged once again but now with a new leader spear heading the movement of organised crime in Los Santos.
