Mafiya

Post by Nizarr » Fri Feb 01, 2019 1:42 am

Disclaimer

As will become evident, the following story inevitably refers to consequential allegations relating to many individuals. It is essential therefore that no one proceeds without keeping the following thought in mind:

Though the Russian mafiya is bound by brotherhood, it does not mean every Russian is a member of the mafiya. The Russian mob is what it is today due to the impoverished and weakened society that began after the fall of the Soviet Union. This story solely seeks to identify the broad history of the Russian mafiya within the city of Los Santos. Within this broad history, there has been some prominent individuals who have managed to elude prosecution more often than expected. However, this is not a story dedicated to criticizing the incompetence of law enforcement. Many have downplayed the presence and importance of the Russian mob in Los Santos. There have been numerous people who were acting in good faith due to the lack of concrete evidence on the existence of Russian organized crime within the city.

Prologue

It is impossible to tell the story of the mafiya without reckoning the narrative of one of the earliest entities. The first presence of a prominent Russian mafiya in Los Santos was introduced by Vadim Tarasov and Pavel Zhegulov in 2013. With the release of around thirty to forty established Russian mobsters in June 2013, the time was ripe for Russian organized crime. The new year came, and 2014 proved to be an even more successful year for the mafiya.

By mid-2015, Tarasov’s group was nearly extinct and considered defunct. Vladimir Korneyev sparked a war between his crew and that of Gennadi Dyuzhenkov. It is unclear as to which side prevailed, though it is best to assume the entire organization disintegrated with notable figures preferring to live in the shadows. It is speculated that some members of Tarasov’s mafiya remained intact. It is currently rumored that Ivan Nikolayev, the right-hand man of Gennadi Dyuzhenkov, is still operating out of Los Santos.

Viktor Strelnikov and Boris Nekrasov founded a new Russian organized crime enterprise separate from that of Tarasov’s in early 2015. While Tarasov’s organization crumbled from civil war; Strelnikov and Nekrasov continued to flourish and carry the torch of Russian organized crime in Los Santos.

Utilizing a proven strategy, Strelnikov and Nekrasov recruited locals to do their bidding. As the organization grew in numbers and power, so did the attention of local law enforcement. The Russian mafiya was now viewed as a serious threat by public officials. It was Strelnikov himself who established the neighborhood of “Little Moscow.” With one of the crews operating out of East Beach, the area would become a famed hotspot for Russian immigrants and criminals. With the death of Strelnikov, a few number of lowkey Russian criminals were starting to create shock-waves in the criminal underworld of Los Santos.

Modern Organizations

The mafiya has become an umbrella label for all of the numerous Eurasian organizations—Russian, Chechen, Ukrainian, Georgian, Armenian, and so on—that have nothing or little to do with one another. By cultivating the art of murder and trafficking, and being able to simultaneously elude prosecution, the Russian mob is able to acquire power and money while maintaining secrecy.

Around Christmas 2015, Kirill Ustinov and Stjepan Ustinov spearheaded a small Russian organization. Though they would not last for long, the reputation of the Ustinov brothers would hold weight for years to come.

It was not until mid-2016 that the Russian mafiya would experience a minimal resurgence. Vladimir Menshchikov and Vadim Zakirov founded an enterprise that sought to separate itself from its predecessors; opting to operate out of Star Street instead of Little Moscow. Their time came and went, and before Los Santos knew it, there were new players at the helm. In November 2016, Vasily Romanov established a new organized crime group in the Temple area. Though short-lived, it helped maintain the presence of the Russian mob in Los Santos.

In Spring 2017, a new group was forming based out of Little Moscow. Led by Leonid Tsaryov, this group would eventually join forces with Kazimir Egorov. Egorov introduced Tsaryov to a traditional Russian criminal structure. The Ustinov brothers helped the duo lead their criminal enterprise, along with others such as Maxim Kukulayev. It marked the first time since 2015 that the Russian mafiya in Los Santos was following traditional rules. As history has demonstrated, the time of Tsaryov and Egorov would not last forever. Not too long after, David Garin and Erik Pavlenko abused weak government systems to take advantage of the opportunities provided to them by the Ocean Docks. Soon, they too would fall.

The Current State of the Mafiya

Since February 2018, the Russian mob has failed to maintain a substantial presence in the city of Los Santos; many have tried since but have been unable. It is not to say that Russian organized crime in Los Santos has completely vanished. The new generation of Russian criminals, guided by Tsaryov, is the reason for the revival of Little Moscow. With old players returning to the helm—namely Leonid Tsaryov, Kirill Ustinov, and Maxim Kukulayev—2019 is looking to be a promising year for the mafiya.

What Happened to the Russian Mafia?

.....................
Although not as prevalent or romanticized as the Italian Cosa Nostra, the Russian mob is embedded in American popular culture. With countless of Hollywood movies, books, shows, and video games—it seems as if though Americans can not get enough of the red "mafiya."

Approximately two years ago, I published an article detailing the rise of Eurasian organized crime out of the Brooklyn Blocks area of East Beach, better known as "Little Moscow" to locals. However, it is clear now that the aforementioned scope and progress of the Russian mob was vastly exaggerated by myself at the time. The Russian mob is not what it once was: a power structure capable of controlling a variety of areas at once and eliminating entire organizations out of existence.

Just last year, over thirty Russian mob associates and members were arrested in the Willowfield plaza. Although the Russian mob has taken significant hits, it is maintained that it is the "most dangerous organized criminal threat to American society."

If the Russian mob can make a comeback is something the future will unfold. Only more can be revealed as time goes on.

Reputed Russian Mobster Shot Dead in Willowfield

.....................
An unnamed reputed Russian mobster, along with two associates, was shot and killed inside of his vehicle in Willowfield on late Saturday night, the LSPP reports.

According to police, an SUV was driving through the Willowfield homes with two black sedans following when gunfire rang out. All of the occupants in the two sedans were armed with a variety of weaponry, including a modified AR-15, according to eyewitnesses. Gunfire was exchanged between the two groups and that in the SUV, leading to the death of all of the occupants of the SUV.

Police are currently searching for any vehicles matching the descriptions of the two sedans. No arrests have currently been made and it is unclear if authorities have a lead on any suspect, let alone a group of suspects. Authorities have also been hesitant to release any information which would identify those deceased.

"It remains a very active investigation at this point," LSPD Chief of Detectives John Smith said.

The shootout is being described as something comparable to the mafia violence that hit the city of Los Santos in 2017. "We thought those days were over," Smith said of the shootout. "Very surprising, but I guess old habits die hard.

We are portraying a second generation of Little Moscow with the timeline slightly elapsed to aid in immersion and realism.

Little Moscow provides the most realistic portrayal of the Russian mafia in Los Santos, a fact reflected by our history, character story-lines, criminal activities and structure. We do not portray one-dimensional Russian figures, and neither should you. There is variety and flavor in each and every character, especially within the more open-minded second iteration of the Russian mafia.

Knowledge about the Russian mafia, or any Eurasian mafia, and Eurasian culture is not required but seen as a bonus. It is up to your discretion how much you would like to research and investigate to authentically depict your character's individual personality and attributes; there is no blueprint for how you should develop your character. Furthermore, our faction is not exclusive to those of Russian descent, as other Eurasian ethnicities are accepted including Armenian, Chechen, Ukrainian, etc.

All current and potential members must renounce their right to a character-kill to the upper echelon of the faction. Be sure to private message Kolyah with the following format:

Code: Select all

I, [Firstname_Lastname], give the leaders (or their designee) of Little Moscow and its subordinates, permission to CK (Character Kill) my character for whatever in character reason they deem fit.
Recruitment is done entirely in-character. If you have any constructive criticism or complaints, please do not hesitate to private message Kolyah or Nizarr.
