2 Highly-Ranked, Reputed Mobsters Have Philly Ties
PHILADELPHIA - In this edition of "Mob Talk," we're taking a look at a different group of wiseguys: the Russian mafia. Fox 29's Dave Schratwieser and the Inquirer's George Anastasia take the wraps off two highly-ranked reputed Russian mobsters who have ties to Philadelphia. One has been on the FBI's most wanted list. The other is a rising star in the red mafia who FBI agents have been trailing for years. And part of that trail runs right through Philadelphia.
Welcome to the new Russian Organized Crime site. We follow all the recent news on subjects involved in Russian Organized Crime in the United States.
The US's organized criminal threat no longer comes from the La Cosa Nostra. Transnational groups, primarily Russian Organized Crime, have risen to the top. These groups have the ability to import and export crime to every corner of the world with ease. As governments realize that these Transnational groups pose a larger threat to their safety than terrorism, the focus, along with the spending will be redirected. Hopefully the nations of the world will realize this before they become completely entrenched.
